The Travis Scott legal story surrounding Astroworld has taken a new turn… an attorney representing over 200 claimed victims has recently filed a $2 billion lawsuit against the rapper and others.
In what appears to be a rat race among Houston attorneys to grab up festival clients, attorney Thomas Henry has just increased the ante. It’s worth noting that this is Henry’s fifth amended case, and he’s now asking for $2 billion in damages.
The lawsuit, filed against Travis, Drake, Live Nation, NRG Stadium and others alleges fans were “incited into a frenzy” when Travis started to perform and started a surge toward the main stage, trampling and crushing some in attendance.
Henry’s latest filing represents 280 plaintiffs and blames organizers for not taking Astroworld safety concerns from 2019 into account when planning 2021’s version.
