Richard P. Console, Jr., a South Jersey personal injury lawyer recently filed a complaint on behalf of alleged victim John Sweeney against the organizers of the event alleging that they failed to provide adequate security for the attendees at the 2012 concert by not providing a sufficient number of security personnel and not removing visibly intoxicated and unruly patrons from the premises.
