Two security guards who were on shift the night of the Astroworld tragedy have filed lawsuits against Travis Scott.
According to reports, Samuel and Jackson Bush’s lawsuit names 28 people and companies, including Scott, Cactus Jack Records, Live Nation, ScoreMore, NRG Park and security companies Contemporary Services Corp and AJ Melino & Associates. They are uncle and nephew.
They say that AJ Melino & Associations “took very few measures to prepare its contracted employees for the chaos that ensued,” and that the company failed to do background checks. The company did not hold any training sessions or gove them supply walkie-talkies so that they could communicate with higher ups when things went left.
“For the most part, they told us where to stand, not to let people run in, and to be safe and not to put our hands on anybody,” one of the men said in a press conference. “There was no training.”
“You’d think it’d take more than signing your name,” their attorney, Larry Taylor, said. “It was as simple as you and I walking on the other side of this gate.”
