Injured at Jethro Tull Gig
Highest Court Court of Common Pleas of Pennsylvania
Year Ended 1993
Plaintiffs Concert Attendee(s)
Defendants Music Promoter(s)
Music Proprietor(s)
Other Jethro Tull
Short Description After a Jethro Tull concert in Pennsylvania, Plaintiff was robbed in the parking lot which, according to available indicia, contained inadequate security to prevent such an occurrence. Two defendants are relevant to this case, the proprietor of the event and the company hired to handle parking, since the attack occurred in the parking area. Defendants settled for $150,000, but submitted to a non-jury determination for the issue of which party was responsible for how much damage. The court found the proprietor mostly responsible (4/5 of the award), saying agreements between the two parties, which had continued for years, made no reference to the parking company needing to provide security in the parking lot. After both parties appealed, the court upheld the division of damages, saying all evidence reasonably lead to the prior conclusion; the concert's proprietor exercised control over the parking situation and overall running of the concert, and split the costs 50/50 with the parking company. The court's division was not an abuse of discretion. - LSW
