A Texas trial attorney has filed a $2 billion lawsuit following the Astroworld music festival crush that killed 10 people and left hundreds more injured.
The lawsuit filed by Houston attorney Thomas J. Henry is on behalf of 282 victims who have hired Henry to represent them. According to Henry, another 120 victims have contacted the firm seeking representation for the injuries and damages.
The lawsuit names Live Nation, Apple Music, Travis Scott, Aubrey Drake Graham, and NRG Stadium among the defendants.
Live Nation promoted the event, while Apple Music streamed the music festival live. Scott and Graham were performing on stage at the time of the crowd crush. The event was hosted at NRG Stadium in Houston.
“The defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money off of this event, and they still chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk,” said Henry. “My clients want to ensure the defendants are held responsible for their actions, and they want to send the message to all performers, event organizers, and promoters that what happened at Astroworld cannot happen again.”
Earlier in the week, Houston attorney Tony Buzbee filed a $750 million lawsuit on behalf of 125 victims who attended the event. The lawsuit names Live Nation, Apple Music, Scott and medic company Paradocs as defendants.
