Unable to Correct the System Failure? NY Court Tosses 'Star Trek' Lawsuit
Tuesday, December 22, 2009
A New York court says a 'Star Trek' fan does not deserves millions of dollars in damages for buying memorabilia he says proved fake. The court ruled that Ted Moustakis of Towaco, N.J. wasn't promised a one-of-a-kind piece when he paid $11,400 for a uniform supposedly worn by Data on 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' at a 2006 Christie's auction. The appeals court did say Moustakis is due, at most, a refund for two other purchases he says were fake, a $6,000 poker visor supposedly worn by Data and a $6,600 table from the show's set.
