Appeals Court: LIMP BIZKIT Not Liable For Paramedic's Injuries

The Associated Press is reporting that LIMP BIZKIT were cleared of any liability for injuries suffered by a paramedic who was kicked in the head after frontman Fred Durst invited concertgoers to come down to the main floor, the Michigan Court of Appeals said.

In a unanimous decision released Wednesday (June 30), the appellate court said Durst didn't have a responsibility to keep from inviting concertgoers to come down to the main floor during a performance at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

An eyewitness said someone in the crowd kicked the paramedic, Christopher Dickinson, as if he were a soccer ball.

"The thug who kicked (Dickinson) in the head violated his duty to (Dickinson) and, if caught, should be held accountable," the appeals court said.

The appellate court also ruled other members of LIMP BIZKIT, the band's corporation, promoters of the concert and the venue were not liable for Dickinson's injuries.
