Swedish House Mafia fan settles €60k case over concert stabbing
A Swedish House Mafia fan, who was one of a number of people stabbed and beaten up at the group's infamous concerts in the Phoenix Park four years ago, has settled his €60,000 damages claim against the organisers.
Barrister Suzanne Walsh told Judge Jacqueline Linnane in the Circuit Civil Court that Niall Davey's personal injuries case had been settled and could be struck out with an order for his legal costs.
She did not disclose the amount of the settlement.
Mr Davey claimed anti-social behaviour by a group of males, who kicked mud in people's faces, went on for two hours at the July 7 concert before two security men tackled them but had been forced to retreat.
A short time later he had been attacked and viciously assaulted, beaten and stabbed in the back.
Mr Davey, of Castleknock Drive, Castleknock, Dublin, had sued MCD Productions, Dun Laoghaire; Swords Risk Services Limited, Tuam Road, Galway; Eventsec Limited, Queen's Way, Belfast; Michael N. Slattery & Associates Limited, Lower Pembroke Street, Dublin; and PBM Productions Limited, trading as Diffusion Events, Dun Laoghaire.
