According to legal documents obtained by People magazine, the family is accusing the defendants of “gross negligence” and “reckless disregard” for their son’s safety. John—a high school freshman from Hedwig Village, Texas—was among the victims who were killed during the Nov. 5 music event at Houston’s NRG Park. Investigators say evidence suggests the deaths were caused by a crowd surge that began shortly before Scott’s headlining performance.

“Defendants egregiously failed in their duty to protect the health, safety, and lives of those in attendance at the concert, including but not limited to the failure to provide adequate security personnel to implement crowd control measures, proper barricades, and the failure to provide a sufficient amount of emergency medical support,” the complaint reads.

Additional defendants include Live Nation subsidiaries, Scoremore LLC and its subsidiaries, as well as other companies that were involved in the festival’s security, production, and promotion.
