In a Los Angeles court filing dated Thursday and obtained by HuffPost, Sean Kehoe and his daughter Kirra Lyn Potts alleged that security staff at the club “violently grabbed and attacked” Kehoe on Nov. 30, 2022, as Shore “encouraged” them.
The lawsuit claimed Kehoe sustained “severe injuries” during the incident, and that both plaintiffs suffered “mental and emotional distress” as a result.
According to the filings, the suit accuses both Shore and The Comedy Store of battery, assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress, as well as negligence in the hiring, training and supervision of employees. The plaintiffs are seeking financial compensation for their medical bills and loss of earnings.
Representatives for Shore and for The Comedy Store did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
