Family Of Girl Who Died At LA Rave Files $5M Claim

View Comments

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The family of a 15-year-old girl who died of an ecstasy overdose after a rave has filed a claim seeking $5 million in damages from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Commission.

The Los Angeles Times said Sunday that the family of Sasha Rodriguez filed the claim with both the city and county on Thursday. The move is a necessary step before a lawsuit can be
filed.

The claim says the Coliseum knew or should have known that the Electric Daisy Carnival in June would promote and facilitate the use of illegal drugs. Rodriguez overdosed and collapsed at the event, and died days later at a hospital.

Coliseum General Manager Patrick Lynch told the Times he hadn’t seen the claim and could not comment.
