Rave Victim’s Family Suing L.A. Memorial Coliseum for $5M
Their claim, filed on Dec. 23, states that the Coliseum "knew, or should have known, that the rave would attract, promote, encourage, facilitate and enable widespread illegal and illicit activity, including but not limited to the possession, sale and consumption of illicit drugs."
After Rodriguez's death and many other drug-related problems from the event, large parties were banned for a time at the venue. They returned in December, though. According to the L.A. Times, raves account for about 28 percent of the Coliseum's profits in a given year.
The battle is not over, either. On Dec. 22, Fiona Ma, a democratic state assemblywoman from San Francisco, introduced a bill to ban raves at all publicly owned venues in California.
