The civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in Superior Court in Washington seeks $1.5 million from each man. The lawsuit filed by lawyers for Parker Isaac Adams says Adams’ nose was fractured and he had other injuries as a result of being punched.
Adams said in a telephone interview Thursday that he is seeking to recover money for his medical bills that include visits to a plastic surgeon and a breathing specialist. A lawyer for Adams, John C. Hayes Jr., said his client is continuing to receive medical care for his injuries.
Brown and his bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were arrested in October after Adams said they both punched him in the face outside the W Hotel. The lawsuit says Adams, 20, tried to get in a picture that Brown was taking with two of Adams’ friends, and the singer and then Hollosy punched him.
At the time Brown was arrested, the Grammy winner was on probation in California for a 2009 attack on singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend. Brown and Hollosy are charged criminally in Washington with misdemeanor assault, and the result of the case could affect Brown’s case in California.
