Travis Scott, Drake, Apple, Live Nation and others will now need to respond to a massive $ 750 million lawsuit brought against them by more than 125 fans, including the family of one who died at the festival.
The lawsuit, filed by a Houston attorney Tony Bozby, Is the first of others to come and put the blame on Travis and concert organizers for negligence in failing to properly plan the concert, train security personnel and host a safe event.
Among the clients is the family of Axel Acosta, A 21-year-old man who was allegedly broken up by an “exhausted, unruly and out-of-control crowd with such force that he could no longer breathe”.
As for the staggering $ 750 million, the lawsuit claims that it is to cover both physical and mental health injuries as well as the loss of life.
Buzbee says, “No amount of money will ever make the plaintiffs complete; no amount of money can restore human life. – Nothing more and nothing less.”
Travis and Live Nation offered refunds almost immediately to concert goers, and the process addresses the proposal, calling it, “… a transparent and grotesque effort by the defendants to limit their liability, after the fact, to the families of those killed or Injured. “
As we reported … 10 people have now lost their lives as a result of the AstroWorld Festival – the last one was a 9-year-old boy.
Law enforcement continues to investigate what caused the deaths, but those in the audience say that a mass crush trapped, trampled and strangled fans.
Sources close to Travis have said that he Did not understand the austerity Of which it was happening in the crowd while he was performing. Photos from Caps took photos And watching Travis’ show more than 25 minutes after the HFD Chief declared the concert a “mass casualty event” seem to support Scott’s claim.
