Ticketmaster flap kicks off

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Richard Figone heard preliminary arguments Wednesday in an antitrust suit against Ticketmaster Corp. and said he might decide within two weeks whether to grant the case class-action status.

Ticketmaster officials have declined comment on the suit.
