Magician David Copperfield takes the witness stand

posted by Mark Robertson - 

David Copperfield testified Wednesday that he didn't know until he was sued that a British tourist claimed to have been seriously injured while taking part in an illusion during a performance on the Las Vegas Strip in 2013.

Although Copperfield said it might be his fault if an audience volunteer who was participating in an illusion got hurt, the celebrated magician didn't acknowledge responsibility for injuries Gavin Cox claims to have suffered when he fell.

"It depends on what happened. If I did something wrong, it would be my fault," Copperfield said during questioning by Cox's lawyer, Benedict Morelli.

"Your defense in this case is ... if they participate and someone gets hurt, it's their fault, not yours. Is that accurate?" Morelli asked. "Yes or no?"

"It's not a simple yes-or-no answer," Copperfield responded in a barely audible voice.
