    Ticket prices are plunging as this weekend’s NBA All-Star festivities kick off in New Orleans, six months after the league relocated the annual showcase event from its original site in Charlotte in protest of North Carolina’s controversial transgender bathroom law. As of Friday morning, the cheapest available seat for Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game at the Smoothie King Center cost $184, according to data compiled by TicketIQ, a resale market ticket aggregator. That number is a 71% decrease from last year in Toronto, when the cheapest ticket on the Friday before the game cost $644. The plunge may not be over...

    The Michigan Senate has passed a bill that would allow the Detroit public school system to hire a company to install and operate an automated traffic citation system — known as “photo cop.” The legislation, Senate Bill 852, sponsored by Sen. Bert Johnson, D-Detroit, was passed following an unusual procedure in which it was discharged from the Senate Transportation Committee directly to the full Senate without a vote by the committee. Senate Bill 852 would permit Detroit school buses to have cameras installed to capture images of motorists who illegally pass a stopped school bus. Fines for violations would range...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — In a symbolic gesture to urge the governor and state lawmakers to come up with a budget, a group of community activists on Monday purchased Illinois Lottery tickets, and pledged to donate any winnings to the state. A week after Gov. Bruce Rauner signed stopgap legislation to resume payouts for Lottery winners – most of which had been halted due to the state’s budget impasse – a group of community leaders bought Powerball and scratch-off tickets on Monday.

    "I do a lot of traveling; I would just jump to the border and go to Wisconsin," said Lobello, 47. "I used to buy lottery tickets in Illinois, but I'm not purchasing them anymore. If they're not paying when they say they're going to pay, I have no confidence in the future." As of Thursday, Illinois Lottery payments for any winnings over $600 are being delayed until the state budget stalemate is resolved. Lottery officials said the agency's check-writing account is depleted and no authority can replenish it, though winnings under $600 can still be retrieved immediately at retail kiosks....

    The Democratic Party of Virginia is currently giving away free tickets to an event featuring Hillary Clinton later tonight. Clinton is headlining the party's annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner on Friday evening. Though the event is raising money for the Virginia Democrats rather than her presidential bid, it is considered an important campaign appearance for Clinton. The dinner is Clinton's first campaign stop in Virginia, a crucial swing state. It's also one of her first stops outside of the early primary states. Tickets for the event are being sold for $30 and $125. However, on Friday afternoon, some Virginia Democrats received an...

    Israelis appear to have been banned from buying tickets to see the Paris St. Germain soccer team in action, NRG reported Sunday night. The discovery was made by an Israeli couple planning a trip to Paris who wanted to attend a game – and could not find a listing for Israeli orders on the group's ticket ordering web site. Guy Schleider of Ramat Gan perused the team's web site and went to the ticket buying area, where a drop-down list allowed residents of countries around the world to choose their home countries where tickets would be sent to. Included on...

    Video has emerged showing a Newaygo County Sheriff deputy admitting his department breaks federal and state laws. Each Newaygo County Board of Commissioners meeting is recorded as a matter of record. The videos of the commissioners’ meetings are public domain. In the video, recorded in January, the Newaygo deputy knowingly admits to breaking federal and state laws that prohibit quota policies in police departments. Not only does he admit to breaking the law, but after he does so, the entire board of commissioners votes to enact his measure of breaking the law. According to the Michigan Vehicle Code, it is...

    Figuring out how much government makes from speeding tickets is a fool’s game. Just ask the National Motorists Association, the one group whose mission it is to know. “We will not be unwitting cannon fodder for self-serving government programs, over-bearing police departments or greedy courts,” states its website. Michigan Capitol Confidential contacted the NMA to see if it had tallies on speeding ticket revenue in Michigan. Speed limit reform bills in both chambers failed to make it out of committee last session but are expected to reappear this session. Jim Walker, the executive director of the NMA, says that the...

    HACKENSACK — City resident Edward Garner thought he was getting a parking ticket for some violation on Main Street Monday, even with 40 minutes left on his meter. Despite Garner's pleas, Officer Frank Garrett handed him a "summons" that contained a note from the city's police director himself: "Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season and a healthy and peaceful new year." Garner, 57, stared at the "ticket" as his wife Victoria laughed in the car. "You know, at my age I could have a heart attack!" he admonished the officer before cracking up. Garner's "ticket" was one...

    Personal property rights are the very foundation of our country's economic system. When you buy something, you own it. Period. And when you own something as your personal property, you have the right to use it, lend it to somebody, give it away or sell it as you decide. These property rights apply to houses, cars, shares of stock, furniture, personal possessions and just about anything you can imagine — everything, that is, except for sporting event or concert tickets bought and sold in Michigan. Unfortunately for consumers in Michigan, we live in one of the few states that impose...

    Hauling a truckload of logs to a Southern Oregon mill last fall, Chris Hill noticed a sheriff's deputy behind him and flashed his lights to warn a UPS driver coming the other way. The deputy pulled over Hill on U.S. Highway 140 in White City and handed him a $260 ticket for improperly using his headlights, saying another deputy had seen the flashing lights from behind the UPS truck and alerted him to stop the log truck because of the signaling. Outraged, Hill decided to fight the ticket, and on Wednesday, a Jackson County Justice Court judge dismissed the citation,...

The city is trying to get payments for some of what's owed. James Canty of Detroit's parking division says the city is putting holds on driver's licenses when they come up for renewal, taking motorists who owe money to court and reporting them to credit agencies.

    Luxury Super Bowl seat prices hit the $1 million mark Monday — with frigid weather expected to fuel hot demand for indoor seats at MetLife Stadium. An optimistic seller listed an amenity-heavy, climate-controlled suite for the Feb. 2 Seattle-Denver showdown at $1,019,000 on the secondary ticket market, and plenty of other sellers came in above the $500,000 mark. Many of the asking prices for Super Bowl XLVIII suites are double those of prior Super Bowls, which commanded $100,000 to $500,0000, market watchers said.

    Delta (DAL, Fortune 500) acknowledged a glitch caused steeply-discounted tickets to be offered online Thursday -- some for as low as $27, according to customers. They celebrated their finds on social media, including cross-country flights for $40 and Boston to Honolulu lifts for $68. One customer said she bought tickets between Tallahassee and Los Angeles for $27 each way. Those routes normally cost between several hundred and several thousand dollars. Related: United and Delta raise bar on frequent flier miles Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter said the airline would honor the incorrectly priced fares, which were offered on the airline's website...

    Tickets to the Rose Bowl to see Michigan State play Stanford are hard to get and those who don't already have them will be further restrained if they try to buy them in Michigan because of a state law that makes it illegal to sell tickets above face value. But a new bill would change that. House Bill 5108, sponsored by Rep. Tim Kelly, R-Saginaw Township, would make it legal for people to sell tickets above face value on the secondary market in Michigan. Though much ignored (see websites like Craigslist or StubHub), a 1931 law makes ticket "scalping" illegal...
