Lawyer takes UK ticket snit to court

The Associated Press

        LEXINGTON — A Lexington lawyer is blitzing his former partner over a pair of University of Kentucky football season tickets.

        David Weinberg filed a complaint this week against his former UK law school classmate, Brian Gilfedder, who has split his four UK home game tickets with Mr. Weinberg since 1974.

        The feud began shortly after 1978, when they parted ways as law partners, but agreed to keep purchasing the tickets.

        But since the split, Mr. Gilfedder has tried to block Mr. Weinberg from getting tickets, Mr. Weinberg says in the suit. And he says Mr. Gilfedder has refused to sign a legal agreement that would put Mr. Weinberg's name on the two tickets he gets.

        “By example, these acts consisted of concealing the due date for payment of tickets, refusing to mail or deliver the tickets, and untimely notification of when the tickets can be picked up,” the suit said.

        Mr. Weinberg says he wants the standoff between him and Mr. Gilfedder to end. “For 19 years I've been putting up with this! Nineteen years! The time has come.”

        Mr. Gilfedder could not be reached for comment.

        Another UK twist: Thomas Clark, the circuit court judge assigned to the case, was a UK linebacker in the early '70s.
