Attorney drops lawsuit over Thunder tickets
Oklahoma City attorney Doug Friesen has dropped a lawsuit over Thunder tickets. He had claimed another fan backed out of an agreement to let him buy a third of her two season tickets.
An Oklahoma City attorney has dropped his lawsuit over Thunder tickets, saying it wasn't worth the pettiness.
Doug Friesen in August asked an Oklahoma County judge to make another fan sell a third of her two season tickets to him. He claimed they had an agreement to split the club-level tickets for three seasons.
The defendant, Oklahoma City accountant Diane Strube, claimed the ticket-sharing agreement was for last season only. She also said all discussions about the tickets had been with Friesen's girlfriend, not Friesen.
The lawsuit quickly resulted in hard feelings.
Strube resented being accused of fraud. Her attorney, John Heatly, told the judge that allegation was made for no other reason than to place Strube in a false light and to damage her.
Friesen resented what was being said about his friend, attorney Lana Cohlmia. He wrote he was dismissing the lawsuit for that reason.
In legal filings, Strube's attorney pointed out that Cohlmia tried to pay for this season's tickets with a check written on her attorney trust account. Strube's attorney claimed such an account would not have included funds from Friesen.
