Oregon woman has finally dropped lawsuit against Justin Bieber over hearing loss, reports kctv5.com
As previously reported, Stacey Betts had filed a $9.2 million lawsuit against Bieber, his concert promoter and the owner of the Rose Garden arena, alleging she suffered hearing loss due to a “sound blast that exceeded safe decibel levels.”
Stacey Betts attended Justin Bieber’s concert in Portland on July 14, 2010. In the lawsuit complaint filed last year, she said her ears now pulsate and she hears a whooshing sound because of the sound blast.
Court documents from the lawsuit allege the blast happened as Justin climbed into a heart-shaped, aluminum-steel gondola and was pulled out over the crowd.
The lawsuit described:
“Bieber created a wave-like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena, then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion, whereas I was struck with a sound blast.”
This week, a judge signed off on Stacey’ wish to drop the lawsuit against Justin Bieber and the case is now closed.
Court records show the woman does not have an attorney at this time and, “does not wish to put any burden on this respected court’s time.”
