Man injured at Cannibal Corpse show has lawsuit tossed

The Associated Press reports that the Alabama Supreme Court has tossed a man's lawsuit against a talent agency involved in booking a Cannibal Corpse show during which the man was injured.

Jordan Pardue and his mother had filed suit against Los Angeles, California-based talent and literary agency, ICM Partners, as the result of injuries Pardue suffered during a 2014 Cannibal Corpse concert at Soul Kitchen Music Hall in Mobile.

The Pardues' complaint alleges that Jordan suffered serious injury after being thrown to the ground during the show: "the crowd became violent and Jordan... was thrown to the ground, suffering a spinal cord injury." Medical expenses for treatment allegedly exceeded $1.2 million.

The complaint adds "that patrons attending Cannibal Corpse concerts exhibit violent behavior," insinuating that ICM was well aware of the inherent danger.

Justices based their decision on the fact that although ICM received a $250 commission for booking the band, it had no other involvement in the show whatsoever. As such, the Court said that a Mobile County judge should not have let the suit proceed.
