PITTSBURGH-- A federal judge in Pittsburgh has dismissed a lawsuit from people who bought tickets to the February 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas, but were forced to watch it on TV because their seats weren't properly installed for the game.

U.S. District Judge David Cercone dismissed the fraud claim saying the four buyers can't prove that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys intended to defraud anyone.

The judge says the case is a contract dispute but the ticket-holders can't pursue it in federal court because the combined ticket, travel and hotel costs don't exceed $75,000.
