AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a former Auburn athletics workers’ lawsuit claiming he was wrongfully fired after raising questions about football ticket sales.

The Opelika-Auburn News (https://bit.ly/2aNv2tN ) reports that Matthew Davis’ suit was dismissed last month after a judge determined he didn’t have standing to sue.

Davis is a former manager at Auburn’s Tigers Unlimited ticket service. The suit claimed he told officials that hundreds of seats at Jordan-Hare Stadium were classified incorrectly and were sold at a lower-than-normal price because contributions weren’t being required.

The suit said Davis later learned he was being investigated by the school for possible ties to gamblers who were supposedly getting information about players.

A university statement says Davis was fired for violating university policies and called the ticket allegations “baseless.”
