Three 6 Mafia Settles Lawsuit Over Injured Fan
Memphis-based group Three 6 Mafia have settled a lawsuit filed by a Pennsylvania man who alleged that he was assaulted by rowdy club-goers after the song “Let’s Start A Riot” was played. Ramone Williams, who filed the suit in 2005, claimed that he was thrown to the floor, hit with a chair and kicked repeatedly during the song. The incident occurred during August of 2003 at the now-shuttered Rock Jungle nightclub in Pittsburgh, PA. Williams was allowed to enter the establishment, despite the fact that he was underage at the time. While details of the settlement are sealed, the AP reports that Williams received some sort of financial compensation from the group last month. The club’s proprietors had previously failed to respond to a default judgment issued against them as a result of the incident.
