Listen to Rick Springfield on iHeartRadio

A surprise mistrial has been announced in the case involving a Liverpool woman and popular 1980s rocker/actor Rick Springfield. 

The "Post-Standard" says a comment left on a social media site forced yesterday's mistrial ruling just as the case was headed to trial. 

Vicki Calgano sued Springfield over injuries she claims were suffered when Springfield fell on her during a New York State Fair concert in 2004.
