Report: A Judge Has Yet To Reach A Final Ruling On Ian Connor’s $150,000 Lawsuit
In 2013, Connor stage dived at an A$AP Rocky concert and plaintiff Krystina Clowes claims that, as a result, she suffered a fractured vertebrae.
Today, a number of blogs have reported that Ian Connor is to pay $150,000 to Krystina Clowes in a lawsuit she filed in 2015. The case is a result of the fractured vertebrae that Clowes suffered after Connor stage dived into the crowd during a 2013 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania show for A$AP Rocky and Wiz Khalifa's Under the Influence Tour. Over the phone, a representative from the Pittsburgh U.S. District Court told The FADER that the ruling against Connor is still pending.
"The report recommendation that the motion would be granted was filed on October 18, 2016 by the magistrate judge, and it's pending before the presiding Judge Bethune and she has not ruled on it yet," the representative said.
The Federal Complaint record states, "Connor ran to the front of the stage, and leapt from the stage into the crowd," and then made harmful contact with Clowes which caused her to fall to the ground and sustain her injury.
Clowes requests that Connor pays her $75,000 for bodily harm, pain, suffering, and emotional distress caused by his conduct, and an additional $75,000 in punitive damages — totaling $150,000.
However, the representative also confirmed that, "Everyone was terminated from the case except for Roc Nation LLC and Ian Connor."
In a Twitter DM conversation with The FADER, Ian Connor did not directly address the judge's recommendation in the case but did say that nothing has been confirmed.
