Loverboy's Music Inspire Violence?
Highest Court Court of Appeals of South Carolina
Year Ended 2001
Plaintiffs Concert Attendee(s)
Defendants Music Proprietor(s)
Other Loverboy
Short Description Loverboy's only involvement in the suit was that they happened to be playing at Defendant's venue on the night of the incident at issue. Plaintiff was injured by another patron in the parking lot, who threw a billiard ball into a moving car, striking it's passenger. In determining whether Defendant's venue should have had more significant security presence, the court actually considered the content of Loverboy's lyrics, which purportedly encourage drugs and alcohol, and thus could form the basis for an increased need for security measures. In the end, the appellate court held there was no evidence supporting a negligence claim. - LSW
