Foo Fighters Settle Terrorism Insurance Lawsuit
October 19, 2016

American rock band Foo Fighters has resolved its lawsuit against various Lloyd’s of London insurers for their failure to cover losses due to cancelled shows in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. The Foo Fighters filed their complaint in June, alleging that their insurers did not pay them for shows that were called off in Turin, Italy; Paris and Lyon in France; and Barcelona.

The cancelled shows were scheduled to be held right after the ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris in November 13. Expecting coverage from their terrorism policy, the band notified insurers that the shows would not be held. However, Lloyd’s insurers “have not paid or offered to pay a single penny of Foo Fighters’ terrorism coverage claim,” the band’s complaint read.

US District Judge Manuel Real approved the case dismissal with prejudice, which means that Foo Fighters cannot refile the lawsuit based on the same claim. Terms of the parties’ settlement were not disclosed.
