Bret Michaels Sues CBS for 2009 Tony Injury

Bret Michaels filed a lawsuit against CBS and the Tony Awards on Friday based on the stage scenery that dropped and hit him when he performed at the 2009 Tony awards.  His suit seeks unspecified damages, but ties the 2009 injury to the brain hemorrhage that he suffered in 2010.

In addition to the expected negligence claim, the complaint  (pdf) brings claims for battery, negligent interference with economic advantage, and negligent misrepresentation. 

Coverage abounds:  People, Hollywood Reporter, LA Times, Entertainment Weekly.
