NEW YORK (AP) - An attorney for Bret Michaels says the rocker has settled a lawsuit against the Tony Awards over an accident he claims put his life at risk.
Attorney Alex Weingarten says terms of the agreement will not be
disclosed. He announced the settlement in a statement issued Monday.
The Poison frontman was hit in the head by a set piece during the 2009 show and suffered a brain hemorrhage months later.
A federal judge in New York dismissed the case Monday after both
sides announced a provisional settlement.
Michaels sued the Tony Awards and CBS Broadcasting in March 2011, claiming the never explained to him there would be a set change after the performance.
Emails seeking comment from CBS and publicists for the Tony Awards were not immediately returned.
