LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A woman has reached a settlement of her lawsuit against the Dodgers and Live Nation Worldwide Inc. in which she alleged the team and the event promoter shared liability for injuries she suffered when she was allegedly attacked by other fans in a Dodger Stadium parking lot while attending an Aventura concert in 2021.

An attorney for plaintiff Nadia Manzano filed court papers on April 3 with Los Angeles Superior Court Michelle C. Kim stating that a resolution of the case was reached, but no terms were divulged. In the wake of the accord, the judge on Tuesday canceled the scheduled Sept. 20 trial date.

The lawsuit brought in November 2021 alleged lawsuit alleges negligence and premises liability. In their court papers, attorneys for the Dodgers and Live Nation denied any liability on the part of their clients.

Manzano went to Dodger Stadium to see the Dominican-American bachata group on Sept. 5, 2021. The security team was employed by the Dodgers, and Live Nation promoted the event, which was part of the band's "Immortal" tour, the suit stated.

Manzano was in parking lot P when other fans stood in front of her car and verbally harassed her, with some reaching inside the vehicle to "violently assault and batter her," the suit stated.

The security team stood by and watched, failed to stop the altercation and did not summon aid or notify the police, according to the suit. Alcohol was sold during the concert, increasing the likelihood of such assaults and batteries, the suit alleged.

Manzano suffered lost earnings, personal injuries and emotional distress and has had to pay for medical care that will continue into the future, the suit stated.
