Apparently she left voluntarily (not after being kicked out). Still, suing the venue?

The dumbass also hitchhiked her way home when she had a cell phone and apparently has friends because she called them earlier.

FTA: "We will leave no stone unturned," said a resilient Gil Harrington. "That's what you do when you're looking for the filth and the slime that festers in the dark. And once we pick those stones up, we will hurl them as hard as we can."


Umm..OK? That statement just seems kind of creepy to me.

Meh, cases like this piss me off because they will settle out of court because it's cheaper than going to trial. It's bull shiat.

Your kid made a series of bad decisions that led to her demise. But I suppose it's easier to blame the venue she voluntarily left than admit you were a bad parent to a stupid kid, huh?

I can haz personal responsibility?

Not necessarily. I would at least try to get out on summary judgment before entertaining a settlement offer. You have a good chance of succeeding, its relatively cheap, and there is something to be said for not encouraging people to file stupid lawsuits against you.

How the hell is it the venue's fault that she left the venue and elected to wander the streets and try to hitchhike? It's a shame that she was killed, but I fail to see how her doing something so stupid is the venue's fault. It's not as if the tickets to shows like that do not clearly state "no re-entry" on them, and even if she missed that part, it's STILL not the venue's fault she didn't call someone for a ride, or call a cab, or any number of far more logical things that she could have done.

I am not one to blame the victim -- people SHOULD be able to walk the streets freely without getting killed, obviously, and the killer should firmly shoulder the blame. That said, anyone who hitchhikes in this day and age is an idiot and putting themselves in danger. In general, sane and well-meaning people don't pick up random strangers on the street, just for starters.

If the venue had let her back in, she wouldn't have tried to go to the house. If you pay for a ticket, why shouldn't you be let back in? They are so inflexible that they can't make an exception to a rule in this day and age where ticket fraud would be easy to trace and enforce?

What if the concert were more than 75% over? Should they let her back in then?

she wasnt killed
she is hiding from her parents. her parents are obviously insane abusers and she is hiding from them in fear for her life. She was rescued by the driver while hitchhiking and he has her safety hidden in his basement.

She will probably come out of hiding once it is safe after her parents die. or her rescuer forgets to lock the doors to keep her extra safe inside.

Honestly, I don't really understand why so many venues have that policy -- it is stupid. It's probably something to keep us "safe" or something along those lines. And we all know anywhere that has rules is generally inflexible, so that's no shock. Regardless, it's not the venue's fault that she left and decided to wander around and hitchhike. She was 20 years old, not 8, and should have known that wasn't an intelligent decision to make.

A lot of times, it's to keep people from getting wasted in the parking lot and coming back in, when most of the security is in the crowd area and distracted.

what I really dont understand about this lawsuit is, can I pretty much sue everyone if something bad happens?
I went out to dinner. and later I was hungry. I can sure the restaurant for not giving me enough food right?

can the venue sue the parents for being retarded bloodsuckers who were terrible parents for letting their snowflake go to a Metallica concert??
 
2011-10-18 02:02:42 PM  
I'm surprised they're not suing the taxi companies she chose not to ride home in.
 
2011-10-18 02:03:44 PM  
I can't open the article, but is this lawsuit taking place in America? If so, they will win, because no frivolous lawsuit in America goes unrewarded. I would imagine the family gets 50 brazillion dollars at a minimum. Double that if she spilled her coffee beforehand.
 
2011-10-18 02:05:51 PM  
did everyone not allowed to re-enter get killed?


still offer my condolences though. losing a child has to be the worst kind of pain.
 
2011-10-18 02:06:23 PM  
Was she hot? She must be hot. The parents wouldn't be suing if she was ugly.

BurnShrike: I'm surprised they're not suing the taxi companies she chose not to ride home in.


sue the cab companies for not sending a cab to a concert (hmmmmm I wonder if there were cabs outside already waiting for people?)
sue the cell phone maker because her battery might have died so she couldnt call for a cab
sue the cell service provider because maybe she only got 1 bar
sue the DOT for not providing better security for hitchhikers

hmmmmm
back to the cabs
do we know that she didnt end up in cab?
this would be a great way to get cheap/drunk/stoned "dates"/victims/new girlfriends
 
2011-10-18 02:07:22 PM  
The lawsuit is asinine. The venue was only enforcing their policy, similar to the policy at almost every venue in the country.

She was outside talking on her cell phone, yet didn't bother to call her friends inside the concert or call for a taxi or a ride home, but instead decided to hitch a ride from a stranger while wearing a mini skirt and knee-high boots?

Yeah, sounds like the venue's fault to me.

If you hitchhike when you have a cell phone and people nearby you can call, you're just rolling the dice unnecessarily.

It's so people don't pass used ticket stubs/tickets to others outside. Think about it, you could send one friend out, with 20 used tickets, give them to friends or sell, then all claim they'd already been inside. That, and people go outside to drink in the car and not pay arena prices. Also, it's HARDER to spot ticket fraud then it used to be, especially with email tickets, etc.

They may be stupid and arbitrary but those are the rules she entered in to voluntarily when she bought the ticket.

I think a lot of people will not recognize what you are doing here. But I do and I commend you for it. It takes a truly brave person coupled with a lot of effort to put together a post defending this lawsuit. And if not for people like you, this thread would just full of agreement that this lawsuit is amazingly retarded. What fun would that be? It'd probably cap off at like 60 posts and would be all agreement.

I hope people join me when I say: Thank you, EnviroDude.
 
2011-10-18 02:13:24 PM  
I blame the parents, but still it seems like the big deal is the 'no reentry policy'. I suppose that had they let the kid back in things might have turned out differently. I can't think of too many good reasons not to let people back in (who aren't stoned out of their minds) except for greed. So maybe the venue might have had to hire an additional person or two to check wrist bands. It's not like you're letting anyone into see the bands for free, even if the person returning isn't the same as who exited.

/yeah, yeah, there are incremental sales to fans of the first band only who would otherwise be passing off the wristband to a fan of only the second band, but really....farkin' Metallica has enough money. Too bad they aren't being sued as well.
 
2011-10-18 02:14:15 PM  
At around 9:30 p.m., she was seen walking on the bridge and then hitchhiking for a ride from passing traffic.

Smooth. Was it too much trouble for her to put a "Murder Me" sign on her back?

Kids often make bad decisions.

Sometimes the consequences are disastrous.

The parents are douchebags but a feeling person has to be sorry for their loss.

Was she hot?

Free Range Deranged: I blame the parents, but still it seems like the big deal is the 'no reentry policy'. I suppose that had they let the kid back in things might have turned out differently.


Well sure and by the same regard, I think we can equally say the big deal is this country's education system. I mean, had this girl not been completely retarded and hitchhiked home from a Metallica concert at 9:30PM, things would have turned out differently. So if we had non-retarded citizens, we could prevent tragedies like this. I hope the parents sue Obama next.
 
2011-10-18 02:17:10 PM  
You know, it's really easy to just tap one of the door guys on the arm and say "Hey, I have to step outside and make a phone call real quick, let me back in?" That way he saw you leave and will be more obliged to let you back in.

I'm very sorry that this girl's stupidity caused her death. Sueing the venue will not bring her back; and it's only making me understand why she thought she was invincible in the first place.

If she hitched home when she couldn't get back in.... How was she going to get home had she been allowed back in? If I were the venue being sued I'd want to know how she got there and if she had a way beside hitchhiking to get home.
 
2011-10-18 02:18:28 PM  
Maybe she escaped and has been living in Argentina with Hitler and Eva Braun?
