Out-of-State Ticket Company Subject to Arkansas Law, Judge Rules When Walt Disney Co.'s Hannah Montana character performed in Little Rock, Arkansas, in the person of Miley Cyrus, the speed with which the tickets sold out trigged an investigation by the state attorney general's office, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported Nov. 20. In March, in response to complaints from Cyrus' management and Ticketmaster Entertainment Inc. -- which had the exclusive right to sell tickets -- the state sued Ticket Software LLC of Vernon, Connecticut, seeking disclosure of its clients who were using the Web to sell tickets, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Ticket Software refused, saying its clients' names were a trade secret, and that as a Connecticut company, its operations didn't come under Arkansas law, the newspaper reported. On Nov. 19, a state court judge ruled that the company is subject to Arkansas law, and refused to toss out the attorney general's request for the client names, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
