Meek Mill Concert Shooting Victim Drops Lawsuit Against Rapper

By TheBlast Staff

Meek Mill has one less legal trouble to worry about after a man who allegedly got shot at one of his concerts has dismissed his lawsuit against the rapper.

On December 27, Dylan Thomas filed court documents informing a Connecticut judge that he is dismissing all claims against Meek, the Oakdale Musical Theatre and Live Nation.

The case will be closed but Meek will still have to deal with two pending lawsuits filed by the estates of the two men who were killed during the same shooting.

Meek has denied all claims he should be responsible for any damages.

Thomas filed the lawsuit originally back in 2017. He claimed he attended Meek’s concert on December 30, 2016 in Wallington, CT. He was allegedly shot in the leg and blamed the defendants for allowing "thugs" on the premises and pointed to other violent incidents at previous Meek concerts.

In 2017, the rapper was sued by the estate of Jaquan Graves for wrongful death after Graves was shot and killed outside Meek’s 2016 concert in Connecticut while he was leaving the show.

Meek was also hit with a separate lawsuit by the estate of Travis Ward, who was also killed during the shooting outside the venue.

Both lawsuits accused Meek, along with the Oakdale Musical Theatre Company and Live Nation, of being negligent in handling the security of the concert. The suit also pointed to Meek’s lyrics claiming they incite violence and described how Meek’s concert have had shootings in the past.

The lawsuits are still pending and the families have offered to settle the lawsuits for a total of $6,000,000.

Meek has denied all allegations that he had any role in contributing to the shooting, saying it was out of his control and he could not have known the shooting was going to happen.
