Band And Manager Not Liable For Alleged Assault

Cash v. Robinson, Multnomah County Case No. 1304-05216

Plaintiff Cash attended a concert at which defendant’s band was performing.  Defendant Sarkin was the tour manager.  Plaintiff began filming the show.  Plaintiff alleged there were no signs prohibiting filming. Plaintiff claimed he was told to stop shooting and before he could turn off the camera defendant Sarkin grabbed and assaulted him. He sought $1,000.00 in medical bills, $5,000.00 in future medical bills, $250,000.00 in non-economic damages for mental and physical injury and punitive damages.

Defendant claimed there were signs prohibiting filming at the concert and that once plaintiff began filming, he was told on multiple occasions to stop. They argue that Sarkin then approached plaintiff and tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention.  Plaintiff elbowed the manager in the face and was then removed from the concert by security.
