Indiana State Fair Lawsuits Begin

The first lawsuit has been filed over the Indiana State Fair stage collapse that killed six people last week. The suit claims that flimsy stage construction and failure to heed warnings of “severe thunder storms” caused the injuries and deaths that ensued.complaint1

Ultimately, and I have written this before, I think it is hard to gather all of the facts and figure out all of the appropriate defendants in a case like this within a week. Besides getting some good publicity for the lawyers who file the case, I think there is rarely wisdom in racing to the courthouse steps after an accident.

  • I saw this and completely agree with your take. This had to be a publicity stunt. I can only assume that they will refile their complaint at a later date when they have had a structural engineer(s) make a determination of exactly what happened. Kind of a gross move in my opinion.
