In May, news surfaced that DJ/producer Steve Aoki was being sued by a fan who claimed that his stage antics -- specifically the Hard Rock Cafe show Brittany Hickman attended in 2012 -- caused her to break her neck and nearly be paralyzed.
On Thursday (Aug. 18), the jury reached a 10-2 verdict in favor of Hard Rock Cafe following a two-week trial. Aoki was cleared of liability after reportedly reaching a confidential settlement outside of court with Hickman before the trial began.
