The Jonas Brothers are facing a lawsuit by a fan in Los Angeles for injuries she sustained while at one of their concerts. Ashleigh Johnson is claiming that she attended a free concert given by the band at a shopping mall in May 2010 and was severely injured by other fans due to poor security.
The concert was staged to promote their 2009 album Lines, Vines and Trying Times. At the time of this concert, the boy band was at the height of their popularity.
Johnson claims that she was crushed against a security fence by excited fans at a free afternoon show by the group at Los Angeles’ The Grove. The suit targeted the brothers’ corporate organization, Jonas Brothers Enterprises, as well as Caruso Management Co., the company that runs the Grove.
She is claiming that she suffered “severe injury to her body and shock to her nervous system” after being crushed against the fence by excited fans, in addition to “great mental … and nervous pain.”
It has not been disclosed how much money she is seeking to receive from the JoBros and Caruso Management Co.
