HOUSTON — A judicial board has ruled that the more than 300 lawsuits that have been filed so far in Houston following a crowd surge at the Astroworld Festival that left 10 people dead will be handled by one judge.
The consolidation order was issued Tuesday by a board of judges in Harris County.
EDITOR'S Note: The video above is from Nov. 29 when one of the victim's families visited NRG Park where the festival took place.
Those who have been sued include rap superstar Travis Scott, who created the festival and was the headliner, concert promoter Live Nation and other companies connected to the event.
The consolidation that was granted Tuesday might conflict with a similar request that's before a state panel overseen by the Texas Supreme Court.
