The Dodgers sue Jon Lovitz

Lovitz.jpgYeah, that’s the ticket!  Oh wait, it’s actually not the ticket, and that’s the problem:

Comic Jon Lovitz and others are being sued by the Los Angeles Dodgers
over claims they failed to pay nearly $100,000 for season tickets for
the 2010 baseball season. Delaware-based Dodger Tickets LLC filed the breach-of-contract
lawsuit Monday in Los Angeles.

The lawsuit claims Lovitz and 100 other individuals entered into a
written agreement in March 2008 to buy three dugout club seats for all
baseball games played at Dodger Stadium in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

I’m sure he intended to buy the tickets, but that the person he had mailing the check — um, Morgan Fairchild, yeah! — forgot to send it.

According to the article Lovitz could not be reached for comment.  I’m assuming, however, that if he was reached he’d say “it STINKS!”

    How could you pass on this one: “Yeah, that’s the ticket!!!!”

    It’s in the first line, Alex

    Okay, yeah, but doesn’t Lovitz get some kind of perpetual pass for once having beat up Andy Dick?

    Back when SNL was funny. Master Thespian indeed.

    So Lovitz splits 3 season tickets with 100 other people for 81 games? he pays $1,000 to get a little less that 2.5 tickets out of 243 possible (3 seats at 81 games). He couldn’t even use all 3 tickets to 1 game. you would think he would get a better deal as a master thespian. “ACTING!”

    Lovitz will produce a check to the shock of the Dodgers’ lawyers. One will say, “Mr. Lovitz, over the course of the last several months we have tried numerous times to collect the fee for the ticket package in question. You have repeatedly said you would not pay, and we therefore had no further choice but to file suit and make this private matter public. Now you have decided to pay. Why has it taken so long?”[br]
    “Acting!”
