According to The West Virginia Record, Smith claims he was attacked at the Tunez and Cue restaurant in Morgantown, and as a result he suffered a broken jaw and other injuries which led to him undergoing reconstructive surgery and dental work.
The suit states the defendants’ acts and omissions were the direct cause of Smith’s loss of income, disability, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life. The complaint was filed on May 26 in Monongalia Circuit Court.
Smith says he attended the Taylor Gang Goodstock Tour event organized by Rostrum Records, 4.0, and HowFlyHipHop at Tunez and Cue. During an intermission Tyler and the unknown defendants allegedly started an “unprovoked” assault against Smith. The alleged attackers were said to be contracted by the named defendants.
