Woman sues University of Oregon over concert injuries

September 6, 2018

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A woman has filed a lawsuit against the University of Oregon over injuries she claims to have sustained while at a rock concert in 2016.

The Register-Guard reports Anne Holder filed the law suit last week in Lane County Circuit Court.

Holder says she suffered broken teeth, a torn breast implant, bruises and scrapes when she tripped on a metal barrier and fell face-first onto the ground at a Def Leppard concert at Matthew Knight Arena.

She is seeking $215,213 in damages for pain and suffering, medical bills and to cover the cost of her concert ticket.

University spokesman Tobin Klinger says officials hadn’t been served with the lawsuit but that it would be reviewed and that the university would determine the best way to address it through appropriate legal channels.
