Travis Scott Hires O’Melveny & Myers Litigator For Astroworld Defense

American rapper Travis Scott has hired a team of O’Melveny & Myers lawyers, led by litigator Daniel Petrocelli, to defend him as he faces hundreds of lawsuits filed after the chaos of a Houston concert in early November that led to ten deaths and widespread injuries. 

Daniel Petrocelli, who has worked with several high profile clients throughout his career, will team up with O’Melveny product liability and mass torts practise partners Steve Brody and Sabrina Strong to defend Scott. The lawsuits against him include claims of negligence and failure to provide sufficient medical attention to those injured in the fatal stampede on November 5. 

According to a letter obtained by Reuters, Petrocelli has already reached out to the Astroworld victims’ lawyers who have filed suits on behalf of numerous victims and their families. 

Within the letter, it is said that Scott offered to cover the funeral costs of a 9-year-old boy who died from his injuries incurred at the Astroworld stampede. However, the victim’s lawyer declined the offer on behalf of his client.
