NEWARK, N.J. (AP) A lawsuit against the NFL over the number of tickets sold to the public for the 2014 Super Bowl is going forward.

Josh Finkelman's lawsuit seeks class-action status and alleges the league violated New Jersey consumer protection laws when it made only about 1 percent of tickets to the game at MetLife Stadium available to the public.

The New Brunswick man says he spent about $2,000 per ticket instead of the $800 face value. The NFL released about 900 tickets by lottery.

A judge dismissed the case last year but ruled last week the complaint could be refiled. The new complaint was filed this week.

Attorney Greg Kohn says he can demonstrate the NFL's policies forced fans to pay inflated prices on the secondary market.

The NFL didn't comment Friday.
