Pete Kennedy goes before the judge on Friday, May 11.
That’s the broadcast date for the “Judge Joe Brown” episode that Kennedy taped earlier this month in the television courtroom’s Los Angeles studios. Kennedy, owner of Pete’s Seats, is a defendant appearing on the popular, syndicated show in a segment involving a dispute between him and a father over tickets. A representative of the daytime show declined to disclose the name of the plaintiff….
The case revolves around tickets to a Wiggles concert that Kennedy sold to a man and his children. Allegedly, there may have been an issue with the tickets and the family claims they were denied entry. Subsequently, the man bought tickets from another source and went before the gruff, no-nonsense judge seeking damages.
Kennedy did not return a call seeking comment.
A spokesperson for the show would not disclose the outcome of the case, and didn’t know if the show had previously dealt with cases involving ticket brokers. But, she said this case was unique. “It’s funny that the dispute was about tickets a Wiggles concert. They’re so popular.”
The “Judge Joe Brown” show airs weekdays. Check your local listings for time and channel information.
