Meek Mill has one less thing to worry about! The man who filed a lawsuit against the rapper in 2017 after getting shot at his concert, has decided to drop the suit.
According to The Blast, the victim, Dylan Thomas, filed court documents on December 27, informing a Connecticut judge that he is dismissing all claims against Meek, the Oakdale Musical Theatre along with Live Nation. Although that case will be closed, Meek will still have to deal with two pending lawsuits filed by the estates of the two other men who were tragically killed during the same 2016 shooting.
No details or reasons have been shared as to why the victim has decided not to move forward with his case after initially blaming Meek for allowing “thugs” on the premises during his concert. Meek has denied all claims that he should be responsible for any damages and argued that he is not responsible for other people’s actions.
Despite that, in two separate lawsuits filed by the estate of Jaquan Graves and by the estate of Travis Ward, both lawsuits accused Meek, along with the Oakdale Musical Theatre Company and Live Nation, of being negligent in handling the security of the concert. According to The Blast, the suit also pointed to Meek’s lyrics claiming they incite violence and noted how Meek’s concert have had shootings in the past.
The families have offered to settle the lawsuits for a total of $6,000,000. The lawsuit is currently pending.
