Rock band Foo Fighters have settled a four-month lawsuit

Foo Fighters settle claim

Rock band the Foo Fighters have settled a four-month lawsuit against insurers for concerts cancelled in the wake of the Bataclan terrorist attack.

The band was suing multiple defendants, including several Lloyd’s insurers and broker Robertson Taylor.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but after the settlement was announced, the Los Angeles judge hearing the case dismissed the claim “with prejudice”, which means the band can’t refile the case.

The Foo Fighters claimed their insurers denied them compensation for concerts cancelled following the Paris attacks in November last year, and for earlier cancellations because band leader Dave Grohl broke his leg in June 2015.
