Black Keys manager cleared in ticket scandal


The manager of the Black Keys has caught a legal break.

The Attorney General in Nashville says Fielding Logan didn't break the law by offering tickets for a Black Keys show to a lawyer opposed to a bill to crack down on ticket scalping.

The bill - which would have put controls on the secondary ticket market in Tennessee - was withdrawn. But afterward, a lawyer claimed Logan tried to use the tickets to get him to change his position.

Logan denies any wrongdoing.
