$5 Million Lawsuit Against New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys is Dismissed
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.22.2012

TMZ reports the New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys can't be held responsible for brain trauma. A judge dismissed the bands from a $5 million lawsuit filed by an injured stagehand.

Last July, William Wesley Styron sued the bands for injuries he allegedly suffered during a concert when he fell through a hole in the stage in 2011. Styron said he fractured his skull and suffered brain trauma as a result of the fall. He was looking for $5 million from the groups and other parties he held responsible.

The bands denied the allegation and said it wasn't their fault Styron didn't see the hole in front of him. The judge ruled that responsibility for the fall lies with the production company who hired him, not the bands themselves. The judge then dimissed the case against the bands and found they "owed no duty to plaintiff that was breached when he was injured."
