Refunds Requested for all Attendees
Lawyers representing victims of the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas filed suit last week to force the concert promoter, LIVE NATION ENTERTAINMENT, to refund all 22,000 tickets sold to attendees.
“It’s hard to believe that it’s almost March 2018 and only a portion of those who purchased tickets to the October concert, which ended in massacre, have had their money refunded,” said attorney Mark Robinson of Robinson Calcagnie, Inc.
Robinson filed suit in Orange County, CA. LIVE NATION ENTERTAINMENT, a multi-billion dollar, global entertainment company forged through the $2.5 BILLION merger of Ticketmaster and Live Nation, is headquartered in Beverly Hills.
“Orange County is home to a significant number of people who purchased tickets to the concert,” said attorney Robinson. “We didn’t think it was fair that some who privately asked for refunds got them, when really everybody who bought a ticket deserves a full refund.”
The suit alleges, among other things, that LIVE NATION offered its condolences to concert goers but neglected to return all ticket costs to those who purchased tickets.
Plaintiffs Kevin and Laura Thompson say they paid more than 500 dollars for their two general admission tickets to the festival.
“As we were interviewing several hundred of our clients, we realized some had received refunds and some had not. It didn’t matter if they were family members of deceased, gunshot victims or traumatized because of the shooting and their escape. The only factor was that those that heard about a refund through Facebook or friends and demanded a refund, got it. So we decided to make one demand on behalf of everyone.” Said Craig Eiland an attorney from Austin, Texas who along with James Lee of LeeMurphy in Houston, Texas joined forces with Robinson Calcagnie to bring the suit.
Mark Robinson, Attorney for the Thompsons and others, is urging anyone who may be entitled to a refund to contact him at (714) 500-5045.
