Rapper and Coachella Sued for Crowd Surfing Injury

A college woman is suing rapper A$AP Ferg and the Coachella Music and Arts Festival because of injuries she suffered while watching A$AP Ferg perform at the 2014 festival.  The plaintiff, Libby Frankel, says in the suit that her head and neck were injured when A$AP Ferg leaped off the stage and landed on top of her.  The suit asks for damages, and accuses A$AP of assault and battery.  Frankel included Coachella, and its parent companies, in the suit because A$AP Ferg has a history with this exact type of incident.  In fact, this is the third lawsuit against the rapper for injuries related to crowd surfing.  The suit explains that, as he has been sued twice for the same actions, the music festival knew of the risk and did nothing to prevent it.
