Crown v. Kiedas

Virginia Circuit Court

27 Va. Cir. 371, 1992 WL 884644 (1992)

Facts

The members of the band the Red Hot Chili Peppers (the band) (defendants) held a concert at George Mason University (GMU) (defendant). L.G. Management (defendant) negotiated the contract between the band and GMU. Crown (plaintiff) was a student worker at GMU who was stationed outside the band’s dressing room after the show. After the performance, the band members circled around Crown and another female student worker and allegedly began to sexually and physically assault the women. The band members allegedly followed Crown to her car, continued to assault her, and unlawfully entered her car. Crown filed suit against the band, L.G. Management, GMU, and the Commonwealth of Virginia (defendant). Crown then filed a motion for judgment, seeking $1 million from the band, $1 million from L.G. Management, $1 million from GMU and Virginia, and $1 million in punitive damages from all defendants collectively. L.G. Management filed a demurrer, alleging that it did not owe a duty of care to protect Crown from the band.
