(ABC13) — An Astros season ticket holder has filed $1 million lawsuit against the Houston Astros organization following the cheating scandal, and wants to stop the team from raising ticket prices.
Adam Wallach of Humble alleges the scandal diminished the value of his seats for the past three seasons, as well as the upcoming season.
The lawsuit was filed Friday in Harris County.
In addition to Wallach, his attorney Mitchell Toups said the lawsuit is a class action suit for 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 full and partial season ticket holders.
“By their wrongful actions, inaction and/or omissions, Defendants violated the rights of Plaintiff and each Class Member in the same way by overcharging them for season tickets while Defendants and their employees and representatives knowingly and surreptitiously engaged in a sign stealing scheme in violation of MLB Rules and Regulations, and secretly put a deficient product on the field that could result (and now has resulted) in severe penalties instituted by MLB,” the lawsuit states.
In addition to asking for $1 million, the lawsuit asks a judge to prevent the Astros from increasing season ticket prices for the next couple of years.
“Plaintiff and Class Members are also entitled to injunctive relief prohibiting Defendants from increasing 2021 and 2022 season ticket prices,” the lawsuit states.
What. A. Loser.
The Astros should countersue this dude for being the worst season ticket holder in the history of season ticket holders. We’d win too. Not to mention, if he would just read the fine print of his ticket, he’d see it clearly states you cannot sue the Astros if they win the World Series and then people two years later complain of sign stealing via the use of trash cans. Duh. And even if the ticket doesn’t say that, it won’t matter because he and the rest of the world knows those are the rules of the game. Case dismissed.
