NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - An appeals court in New Jersey is backing a judge who tossed a man’s lawsuit against Wal-Mart and Ticketmaster over concert tickets, calling it “patently frivolous.”

Edward Mierzwa says he went to the Wal-Mart in North Brunswick in 2012 to use the self-serve Ticketmaster kiosk to purchase Beach Boy tickets at 10 a.m. But he alleged in his lawsuit that he was unable to buy premium reserved seats because a Wal-Mart employee was not immediately available to complete the transaction.

Mierzwa ended up with outer perimeter seats. He sued, citing the state’s Consumer Fraud Act.

A judge said it was the most frivolous complaint he’s ever seen and ruled Mierzwa still received the best available seats.
