Travis Scott Astroworld Lawsuit: Trial Start Date Revealed

Travis Scott Astroworld Lawsuit: Trial Start Date Revealed

Overall, the Travis Scott Astroworld Festival in 2021 was a disaster. Ten people were killed during the festival, and thousands of others were injured during a crowd crush. It was one of the biggest festival tragedies in the history of hip-hop, and the ramifications are still being felt to this day. Scott, Live Nation, and even Apple Inc. have been subjected to numerous lawsuits. However, it was recently revealed that Scott had settled nine of the 10 wrongful death lawsuits that had been filed.

Now, Scott is still facing one more for the death of 9-year-old Ezra Blount. A couple of days ago in Houston, State District Judge Kristen Hawkins revealed that the trial for this lawsuit would begin in September. In fact, the exact date for jury selection has been set for September 10th. The family of Blount wanted to have the trial earlier, but judge Hawkins revealed that this would not be feasible at the moment. Of course, the trial could be canceled if Scott and Live Nation come through with a settlement in the next few months.
