Bon Jovi's Golf Cart Attack
Highest Court D. New Jersey
Year Ended 2007
Plaintiffs Security Guard(s)
Defendants Bon Jovi
Tour Promoter(s)
Other No Other parties on file
Short Description After a fire broke out in the V.I.P. area backstage at a Bon Jovi concert, Plaintiff (a security guard) attempted to enforce an order to prevent people from entering the affected areas. When security personnel hired by Bon Jovi attempted to enter the blocked area, Plaintiff sought to prevent them. To this, Jovi's security guy yelled expletives at her and drove off, injuring Plaintiff's leg and heading off towards the off-limits areas. Plaintiff sued Bon Jovi, his entities, and the security guard who injured her. Defendants removed the case to federal court, alleging diversity jurisdiction, but Plaintiffs sought to remand to state court. Because it is possible Plaintiff fraudulently joined New Jersey defendants to avoid diversity jurisdiction, the court allowed the federal discovery process to proceed. Of course, Bon Jovi is from New Jersey, so where's the fraud? - LSW
