Travis Scott Resolves The Final Astroworld Wrongful Death Case

An attorney announced on Thursday that the sole wrongful death claim that was still pending following the deaths of ten individuals in a fatal crush at the 2021 Astroworld music festival has been resolved.

Sept. 10 was supposed to be the start date for the jury selection process in the case brought by the family of Ezra Blount, 9, the youngest person slain during rapper Travis Scott’s concert. However, Blount’s family attorney S. Scott West said this week that a deal had been struck.

Blount’s family had filed a lawsuit against Scott, Live Nation (the largest live entertainment company in the world and the festival’s promoter), and other organizations and people associated with the event, including as Apple Inc. (which livestreamed the concert).

Ezra’s father, Treston Blount, had stated that when they were crushed by the throng on November 5, 2021, his kid was seated on his shoulders. When Treston Blount regained consciousness, Ezra was nowhere to be found. After a desperate hunt, Ezra was finally discovered with serious injuries at a hospital in Houston.

A few days later, the Dallas-born boy passed away. Blount’s family filed one of ten wrongful death legal lawsuits following the tragic concert. Attorneys had stated earlier this month that the nine other wrongful death lawsuits related to the performance had been settled. Confidential settlement terms applied to all ten lawsuits.
