NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Nashville judge says she has no jurisdiction to hear a case by a lawyer who challenged the University of Tennessee over prime box seats at Neyland Stadium.
Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle dismissed the lawsuit by Thomas Luck of Nashville, who wants the seating rights that were given to his father in 1961.
The two box seats, which Luck says are the best in the stadium, are on the front row of the upper west deck near the 50-yard line.
The university is trying to move his seats, and require him to donate an additional $6,000 to the school and pay face value for the tickets.
Luck still can file a breach of contract claim with the state Claims Commission.
