On May 9, 2007, Ticketmaster Canada Ltd. filed a lawsuit against 1st-Air.Net, Inc. and another defendant in the Supreme Court of British Columbia seeking damages of US$91,315.54. According to its Statement of Claim, Ticketmaster had entered into an agreement allowing the defendants to use Ticketmaster’s system to process credit card transactions and defendants breached such agreement by failing to pay for credit card chargebacks totaling the amount of damages sought. Ticketmaster alleges that both 1st-Air.Net and the other defendant, MAR-RAY Associates, Inc., do business in Canada under the name “Livingston Travel” and that 1st-Air.Net’s principal office in the U.S. is located in Rochester, New York.
Update: On February 29, 2008, the court granted Ticketmaster’s request to add Robert Laney and Jacqueline DiBella as defendants in the case. On July 24, 2008, the court entered a default judgment against Robert Laney for US$91,315.54 plus interest and costs.
