Nearly 400 Astroworld lawsuits have been consolidated into a single mammoth case against Travis Scott, a rapper from the United States.

Travis Scott, an American musician, and Live Nation are now facing a massive lawsuit that includes approximately 400 individual lawsuits.

Nearly 400 cases have been submitted by victims individually in the court action. The case involves approximately 2,800 people who were present at the performance on November 5 last year.

According to BuzzFeed News, ten people died in a stampede two months ago during a concert in Houston, Texas. A deadly crowd rush occurred during the ‘Love Galore’ singer’s performance at NRG Park, injuring hundreds.

Several lawsuits have been filed against the performer as well as the corporation that organized the event. After being given permission by a Texas court panel, the cases will now proceed as one.

According to legal documents obtained by Billboard, the new case will include at least 387 separate lawsuits alleging that Scott and the Astroworld organizers, Live Nation, were irresponsible in the execution and planning of the event. The records stated, “We conclude that the cases emanating from [Astroworld] are related, and we find that transferring those cases would result in more efficient pretrial of the related cases.”

The number of cases may alter as a result of more people coming forward after the new lawsuit is filed, while others may drop out, according to the filing. A Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) is a common case in which numerous plaintiffs file an identical complaint. A multidistrict litigation (MDL) refers to a situation in which a single judge will negotiate a settlement to resolve all of the cases at the same time.

According to the publication, all of the victims who have filed a complaint against the 30-year-old musician and his management are wanting billions of dollars in compensation.
