This trick is his famous act and is most liked by his fans. But recently, David Copperfield fell into trouble when one of the participants in the trick sued him for an injury he sustained when he obeyed the magician for the said trick.

As per the court documents, Gavin has stated that he fell during the act and dislocated his shoulder. This act where he was hurt was held at the Las Vegas MGM resort in 2013.

Gavin went on to say that he now had chronic pain at the injured site and also had a lesion in his brain due to the incident.

What do the court and David’s lawyers say?

The court during the hearing asked David Copperfield to reveal the secret of his illusionary act. However, David’s lawyers have argued that disclosing how the trick works in creating an illusion would cost the magician dearly and he would incur financial losses.

But the court refused to agree to this defense and said that those who had been taking part in the act all these years already know about the secret of it and hence his lawyers’ argument does not stand.

Besides, Gavin’s lawyer Benedict Morelli also said that Gavin was not even once warned that the participants could be risky, and had Gavin known about the risk involved, he would have refrained from taking part in it.

It was also said that the route that the participants were told to take was quite dark and uneven with debris from renovation works around. It was also unfamiliar to them.

However, the defending attorney refuted this and said that David had personally gone the same route, and had he seen some issues, he would have alerted the participants.

He said:

“Mr Cox did not slip; he tripped,”
