One of the men beaten outside of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Atlantic City nightclub is now suing the club and the security members responsible for the attack that was caught on tape.
TMZ is reporting that Bryant Norwood is now asking for a “substantial amount of money” from Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, claiming that security beat him for “no reason” as he was leaving the venue in November.
“These so-called security personnel are going to have to answer why Mr. Norwood was lying on the ground being kicked and why he was punched in the head as he tried to escape from them,” Norwood’s attorney told TMZ. “The 40/40 Club is going to have to answer why they hired people like this to supposedly protect their patrons and maintain order in their establishment.”
According to the lawsuit filed in New Jersey State Court, Norwood alleges he has sustained “diverse personal injuries” and “permanent injuries.”
Two other men attacked in the fight are also planning to file lawsuits in the future. Several members of the Atlantic City 40/40 Club were subsequently terminated from their jobs after videotape surfaced showing the bouncers beating two men in the club’s parking lot. Security claimed that they initially approached the men after receiving complaints that the men were accosting women. When security tried to escort the men out of the venue, they began attacking them.
Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the security guards who were involved in the vicious attack on Clark and Durant.
