Couple of days after the tragedy at Astroworld music event in Houston on 5th of November, reports suggest that at least a dozen of concertgoers have filed lawsuits against the popular rapper, Travis Scott and Live Nation along with many other organisers.
The injured concertgoers filed the lawsuit calling the incident a “predictable and preventable tragedy.” In a petition filed Saturday in Harris County District Court, Astroworld attendee Manuel Souza sued the rapper and organisers.
The filed lawsuit claims that the unfortunate tragedy was a result of “motivation for profit at the expense of concertgoers’ health and safety, and due to their encouragement of violence, at least 8 people lost their lives and scores of others were injured at what was supposed to be a night of fun.”
Souza’s attorney, Steve Kherkher wrote, “Defendants failed to properly plan and conduct the concert in a safe manner. “Instead, they consciously ignored the extreme risks of harm to concertgoers, and, in some cases actively encouraged and fomented dangerous behaviors.”
The lawsuit has been filed against rapper Travis Scott along with Live Nation, Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation, NRG Park ScoreMore and ASM Global with many others.
