"Cordell alleges that the 25-year-old Weil, without provocation, struck him over the head with a bottle, hit him a second time and broke the bottle over his head, and then beat him about his head and body with his fists. Alan Schnurman, Cordell's lawyer, said his client was rescued when some of the other 40 partygoers pulled Weil off. Cordell, who is also a recording artist, was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center where doctors closed a scalp laceration with eight staples, Schnurman said.

"…Schnurman said Weil began the assault by asking Cordell who had invited him to the party.
