Law firm launches legal action over F1 Las Vegas GP spectator ejections
The class action lawsuit filed by the Dimopoulos law firm on behalf of 35,000 spectators alleges breach of contract, negligence, and deceptive trade practices against the Las Vegas GP and TAB Contractors Inc, claiming that the track was not race-ready during the practice run. The lawsuit seeks money damages to compensate for the harm caused, including mental anguish, and states that none of the affected spectators have received refunds for their tickets. The F1 organization is aware of the situation. After an incident with Carlos Sainz led to a delay, FP2 finally started at 2.30am, but spectators were cleared from the venue at 1.30am due to staffing and security issues. Spectators affected were offered a $200 voucher to spend at the merchandise sites.
