Houston attorney Tony Buzbee has reportedly filed another massive lawsuit against Travis Scott, Drake, Apple, Live Nation and others involved in the Astroworld tragedy on November 5.
Forbes , Buzbee is representing over 125 concert attendees who were affected physically, mentally and/or emotionally by the deadly event. They are seeking over $750 million in damages. The lawsuit claims the people behind the event failed to make an even minimal effort to keep concert attendees away from harm, citing the death of 21-year-old Axel Acosta, one of 10 people who passed away during the crowd surge. Buzbee also pointed out Scotts history of glorified violence and other dangerous behaviors, bringing up the 2015 Lollapalooza incident in which he faced reckless conduct charges and several social media posts encouraging the crowds to rage. No amount of money will ever make these Plaintiffs whole; no amount of money can restore human life, Buzbee said. But, the damages sought in this case attempts to fix, help, or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these Plaintiffs nothing more and nothing less. The latest filing comes on the heels of another lawsuit blitz filed by attorneys Ben Crump, Alex Hilliard and John Duffy. On November 12, Crump and his team held a press conference at Houstons Harris County Civil Courthouse and announced theyre representing over 200 alleged victims who say they suffered both physically and mentally as a result of the Astroworld tragedy. Theyve filed 110 lawsuits and are planning on filing 90 more.
