$39 Million Settlement In Sugarland Stage Accident http://thunder106.com/2014/12/22/39-million-settlement-in-sugarland-stage-accident/ http://thunder106.com/2014/12/22/39-million-settlement-in-sugarland-stage-accident/#respond Mon, 22 Dec 2014 19:11:28 +0000 http://thunder106.com/?p=3287 Read More]]> A $39 million settlement has been reached in connection with the stage collapse that killed seven people at Sugarland’s 2011 concert at the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis.

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, concert promoter Live Nation and 16 additional defendants have agreed to pay out $39 million to settle claims from the incident, which killed seven people and left nearly 100 more injured after high winds caused stage rigging to collapse, sending the roof of the stage falling into the audience.

According to attorney Kenneth J. Allen, who represents the victims of the accident and their families, the lawsuits against Sugarland, concert promoter Live Nation and 16 other defendants were dismissed on Friday, December 19th.
