Mass. Attorney General Sending Subpoenas to Grand Prix Boston

AG wants a plan to refund customers by June 27

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is threatening legal action if IndyCar Boston does not refund ticket holders. Healey's office is sending out subpoenas to IndyCar, Grand Prix Boston, and John Casey, CEO and President of Grand Prix Boston.

Healey wants to know where millions of dollars in ticket sales and sponsor fees went.

"No company in Massachusetts is allowed to market a major event, sell tickets to thousands of people, and then pull up stakes without giving people back the money they are owed," a spokesperson for Healey said in a statement. "Consumers were promised a quick refund, but were instead left high and dry. We are investigating these companies to ensure that ticket holders are made whole, and are prepared to litigate if they do not comply."

Healey is telling the companies involved that they need to come up with a plan for refunds to customers by June 27, 2016.

The race had been scheduled for Sept. 2-4. It was cancelled on April 29.
