Bret Michaels suit over Tonys accident moved to NY
Judge sends Bret Michaels' lawsuit over Tony Awards accident to New York
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Bret Michaels' lawsuit over an accident at the Tony Awards that he claims nearly killed him is heading east after a federal judge in Los Angeles determined the case should be heard in New York.

U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee ruled Monday it makes more sense the case to be heard in Manhattan, where the Poison frontman was struck in the head by a set piece after performing at the 2009 Tonys.

Michaels sued CBS Broadcasting and organizers of the awards show in Los Angeles in March, claiming the injury contributed to a brain hemorrhage that nearly killed him.

The network and Tony organizers, however, argued the case should be heard in New York since almost all the witnesses to the accident live there.
