A court filing dated Oct. 7 and signed by U.S. District Judge Manuel L. Real in Los Angeles ordered a dismissal with prejudice of the two-part complaint, which had pitted the band against multiple defendants, including several Lloyd’s of London insurers and brokerage firm Robertson Taylor. Because it was dismissed with prejudice, the Foos are barred from re-filing the case on the same claim. Terms were not disclosed.
In its original filing, dated June 13, the Foos had accused the defendants of colluding to reduce payments after the band was forced to cancel several shows when Grohl broke his leg in June 2015 during a show in Gothenberg, Sweden. While Grohl’s injury resulted in seven cancellations, the band’s complaint pertains to only three of them: two at London’s Wembley Stadium and a third at BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Scotland.
