A lawsuit has been filed against a security company by the mother of a college student who was killed after she attended a Metallica concert in Charlottesville, Va. The lawsuit was filed in Roanoke County Circuit Court against Regional Marketing Concepts Inc., doing business as RMC Events. RMC provided security at the concert which took place in 2009.
Morgan Harrington, a student at Virginia Tech, who was 22 years old, disappeared after she left the John Paul Jones Arena and was denied re-entry. Her body was found in January 2010 in a hayfield in Albemarle County. It was reported in the media that the “no re-entry” policy is common practice for events like the Metallica concert. Even so, it would seem that security personnel would be concerned over the safety of a female, who was alone, and tried to get back in the concert. It would appear that denying re-entry to a female – depending on the time and location – would be risky for a security company. Surely, they must have some type of provision for that situation in their contract.
