The lawyer for Gregg Allman today responded to a lawsuit filed by the parents of Sarah Jones, who was killed on the set of Allman biopic Midnight Rider in February. “The inclusion of my clients is unfortunate, unwarranted and without merit,” Atlanta-based attorney David Long-Daniels of Greenberg Traurig LLP said in a prepared statement. “Mr. Allman simply provided an option to acquire motion picture rights to his life story and his autobiography. [He] had no role in securing any location for the making of the movie or the actual physical production of the film.” Allman is among 18 defendants named in the wrongful-death suit filed Wednesday in Georgia State Court by Richard and Elizabeth Jones. His attorney’s statement comes 10 days after Allman settled a lawsuit he had filed against Midnight Rider director Randall Miller and his production company Unclaimed Freight.
