Son sues dad over Steelers tickets

This article by Rebekah Scott is on the Post-Gazette's website, and I've included it below. I'm sure family gatherings are fun!

There's that special, sacred bond between a father and his son. And then there's Steelers season tickets.

According to a lawsuit filed today in Westmoreland County court, Cranberry resident Daniel Lemke paid his father Herbert of Murrysville $1,920 for his Steelers "seat licenses" in August 2003.

But according to Daniel, his dad never handed over the tickets. Dad intends to sell his seats to someone else for more money, the son says.

Daniel Lemke doesn't want his money back. He wants seats 2 and 3 in Row D, Section 142, at Heinz Field next fall.

"[The seats] are unique and have a special value to the plaintiff," the suit alleges, "for which he cannot obtain a duplicate on the open market."

Daniel Lemke wants the judge to enforce the exchange and make his father pay for his attorney fees, too. When contacted today he said only it's a private family matter and he has no comment. The elder Lemke could not be reached for comment.
