A man from Novato is suing Blue Man Group, claiming he was hurt during a show in San Francisco.

The man's lawyer says he got hurt trying to protect himself from a blue plastic or rubber ball that was thrown into the audience, without warning, in 2011.

His medical bills total more than $40,000.

The lawsuit claims the man suffered "shock and injury to his nervous system."

Blue Man Group has not commented on the suit.
