Police in the north-eastern
Brazilian city of Fortaleza
on Monday escorted public
buses after a series of attacks
on public buildings and ve-
hicles over the weekend.
Buses and buildings were
firebombed in the city and
the surrounding state of
Ceará in at least 10 incidents.
The attacks may be in re-
taliation for a move to block
mobile phones in prisons,
local media report. But offi-
cials blamed a war between
rival gangs for the attacks. In
the state capital of Fortaleza,
gunmen shot at the building
housing Ceará’s ministry of
Police shot three of the
suspects dead but four
others escaped, officials
said. Shots were also fired
at a special criminal court
building in the state capital.
Dozens of vehicles were set
alight, including at least five
buses in Fortaleza.
In the town of Cascavel,
south of Fotaleza, 50 vehi-
cles were burned in a bus
depot belonging to the in-
frastructure ministry. Six
people have been arrested
in connection with the at-
tacks. Local media said that
the series of attacks started
on Thursday when a post
office was targeted.
A threatening note was
left in the post office saying
that more attacks would
follow unless state governor
Camilo Santana dropped
plans to block mobile signals
Musician wins case for damage to his hearing
The Royal Opera House has been
found responsible for causing hearing
damage to a viola player who worked
in the Covent Garden orchestra
The company was ordered to pay
£750,000 in compensation, as well
as legal costs. The case also opens the
door for other musicians to sue em-
ployers for hearing damage.
The Royal Opera House said it was
“surprised and disappointed” by the
Chris Goldscheider joined the
Royal Opera House orchestra in 2002
as number 11 viola, before being pro-
moted to number six. At a rehearsal of
Wagner’s Ring cycle on September 1,
2012 Chris was positioned directly in
front of the brass section.
He claimed that during that re-
hearsal, noise levels were so high, his
hearing was immediately and irrevers-
As a result of sitting in front of the
Principal trumpet, Goldscheider de-
veloped Acoustic Shock.
Acoustic shock is different from
hearing loss and is a reaction to acute
stress. Common symptoms include
tinnitus, dizziness, headaches, sleep
disturbance and poor concentration.
The Royal Opera House claimed
that Goldscheider had developed a
natural hearing problem (Ménière’s
disease) during the rehearsal, a view
that was dismissed by the judge, Mrs
Justice Nicola Davies DBE as “stretch-
ing the concept of coincidence too
It is the first time that acoustic shock
has been recognised as a “compensat-
able” condition and the first time the
Music Industry’s obligation towards
musicians’ hearing has been explored
‘Inadequate risk assessment and a
failure by management’
Mrs Justice Davies said she found
breaches of the Regulations at the
Royal Opera House that “commenced
with inadequate risk assessment,
continued with a failure to undertake
any monitoring of noise levels in the
cramped orchestra pit with a new or-
chestral configuration which had been
chosen for artistic reasons”.
She also said there was “a failure by
the management at the ROH to prop-
erly appreciate or act upon the man-
After the ruling Goldscheider, who
left the Royal Opera House in July 2014
as a result of his injuries, said: “As you
can imagine a law suit of this magni-
tude takes its strain on everyone. Not
just on me but my family, my children.
“Here we are today and I’m just
so overjoyed at the judge’s decision
and I hope it will prevent any more
musicians being injured from today
What will be the effect of this
ruling on the music industry?
Chris Fry, of Fry Law, who acted
for Goldscheider in the case, said:
“This case has significance and
will send shockwaves across the
“The Music Business has con-
sidered itself exempt from the
same regulatory requirements as
all other sectors because of the ar-
tistic nature of its output...
“Musicians with hearing loss
should take heart from this deci-
sion and must no longer suffer in
“As Mrs Justice Davies herself
says, “the reliance upon “artis-
tic value” implies that statutory
health and safety requirements
must cede to the needs and
wishes of the artistic output of the
opera company, its managers and
Such a stance is unacceptable,
musicians are entitled to the pro-
tection of the law as is any other
The Royal Opera House issued
a statement saying:
“Although this judgment is restricted
to our obligations as an employer under
the Noise Regulations, it has potentially
far-reaching implications for the Royal
Opera House and the wider music industry.
“We do not believe that the Noise Regu-
lations can be applied in an artistic institu-
tion in the same manner as in a factory, not
least because in the case of the Royal Opera
House, sound is not a by-product of an in-
dustrial process but is an essential part of
the product itself. This has been a complex
case and we will consider carefully whether
to appeal the judgment.”
Musicians UK issued a statement
in response to the judgement:
“The unfortunate circumstances sur-
rounding Chris’ tragic hearing loss reflect
a growing number of hearing related issues
as highlighted in our 2015 hearing survey
where 59.5 per cent of musicians said they
had suffered hearing loss and 78 per cent
said working as a musician was a contribu-
tor to their hearing loss.”
