Two weeks after Travis Scott’s disastrous Astroworld festival, a Texas attorney filed a $2 billion lawsuit on behalf of the concert’s 282 victims. The new lawsuit is one of many that Scott and other parties have to face regarding the many tragedies in Houston on Nov. 5.

In a news release, San Antonio-based attorney Thomas Henry said that the defendants (Scott, Drake, and other parties) made an excessive amount of money off the event but still decided to “cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk.”

He added this his clients want to ensure that the defendants are held responsible for their careless actions and make known to all performers, promoters, and event organizers that “what happened at Astroworld cannot happen again.”

The lawsuit aims to receive up to $2 billion worth of damages from various parties like Scott, Drake, Live Nation, Apple Music, and NRG Stadium. During an interview with Hollywood Life, Henry mentioned that his clients range from teens to 40 years old.

On behalf of his clients, Henry said they are all suffering from the following injuries; “heart attacks, heart issues, brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, eye injuries, internal organ injuries, bruising, and bleeding.” Not only are the physical injuries utterly horrible, but the emotional ones were arguably just as bad.

“Those who were injured are still very traumatized because they had to step over dead bodies,” the high-powered lawyer told the outlet. These victims didn’t have a choice; there was nowhere to go within the thousands of trapped individuals. He added that the crushing effect was heavy and hard; attendees couldn’t breathe and had nowhere to go.

In the interview, Henry said he and his law firm are dedicated to getting ahold of Scott and Drake’s cell phones. His law firm is allegedly beginning that process and is focused on monitoring communications to and from said cell phones. Whether these communications are audio, video, texts, or calls, Henry said that “we are going to make sure that they are all preserved.”

The giant $2 billion lawsuits follow Houston attorney Tony Buzbee’s $750 million lawsuits on behalf of 125 victims. The lawsuit targets Scott, Drake, Live Nation, Epic Records, Apple Music, and other parties involved. CNN reported that at least 140 lawsuits are circling Scott and other parties.

On behalf of our community, we hope that justice is served to the families and friends of those who were tragically injured or lost their lives during that destructive November evening.
