Lawsuits are expected to sore in the next few weeks over the 2021 Astroworld Fest disaster. However, would-be plaintiffs and victims may encounter legal obstacles over according to the information posted on the Live Nation website. Live Nation, the promoter of Travis Scott's concert event may be facing liability suits as many file grievances within the courts.

On the website there is indeed a limitation of liability waiver most individuals decided not to read, however must accept before confirming any purchase. It's a standard agreement that may let Live Nation partially off the hook.

In the state of Texas, a solid liability agreement or waiver would aid in unquestionably providing protection for basic negligence. As reported by TMZ many concertgoers are indeed suing over negligence and lack of police control.

The Live Nation website has an online waiver that states in section:

"You voluntarily assume all risks and danger incidental to the event for which the ticket is issued, whether occurring before, during or after the event, and you waive any claims for personal injury or death against us."

Unfortunately, the waiver didn't detail gross negligence, which if a lawyer or plaintiff succeeds to file, may just be the downfall of the companies defense. Live Nation may have provided a gap for the lawsuits because in Texas, in order for a liability waiver to be implemented for protection upon negligence, there are initial requirements. The company has to emphasize precise language that a common individual/buyer could comprehend and they must directly address negligence in their waiver. According to TMZ Live Nation's Texas waiver didn't follow all the guidelines and claims that the waiver was not posted where individuals could see it but rather hidden within the website. In addition, there are numerous concertgoers who purchased passes through other sources than the companies website. Live Nation's liability waiver isn't exactly fully proofed which may mean a long haul for the lawsuits to come.

Matters will surely conclude in the hands of a Judge. Let us all continue to keep the families of the * victims whose lives were taken too soon in our prayers.

Against my objections, she packed her and our daughter's clothes and left. Since her departure, there has been constant bickering over when I can spend quality time with my child. I have kept my composure and tried my best to keep tensions calm, however, a mutual friend of ours recently told me that she has a new boyfriend that she has been spending quality time with. I brought the topic up to her, and she started calling me jealous and so on. My only point is that she has a man in a hotel room staying with my child. I feel as a father, I have a right to question these actions. I responded by assuring her that I was not concerned with whom she wished to be with, but I would like to care for my child when he is around until I knew him better and so forth. I also brought up the fact that for her to be so comfortable with the new fellow, she must have known him for a longer period of time than said. Which in my mind would explain her recent departure. She became extremely upset and began whopping and hollering about me wasting her life and wanting to control her.

I expressed how this was not his job and that he was bringing himself down for a woman trying to take care of them while she had no initiative to care for herself or her child. In response, my brother reiterated the fact that I could not have kids and went so far as to call me jealous and say that it was the reason I miscarried. I am extremely hurt however my family is saying I should just calm down. Am I wrong for saying that my hands are washed with him? " -Candace.
