Bret Michaels Suing the Tony Awards

Almost two years after his accident with a set piece at the 2009 Tony Awards ceremony, rock star Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison, is suing CBS and the awards show's producers.  The suit arises from an incident at the 2009 Tony Awards ceremony where a moving set piece hit Michaels in the head.  The suit, filed in Lon Angeles superior court, alleges that the defendants did not properly instruct Mr. Michaels how to exit the stage and were, therefore, negligent.

"The Tony Awards dropped a piece of the stage on Bret's head, and then instead of doing the right thing, joked about it and played it off for ratings," said. Michaels' attorney Alex Weingarten. "Bret never wanted to file a lawsuit, but the Tony Awards have left us with no choice. They must be held accountable for almost killing Bret, and that is what we are going to do."
