Lawsuit filed over Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse

A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the organizers of the Indiana State fair after one of the stages collapsed, killing six. According to the lawsuit, event organizers "did not reasonably exercise due care in the design, set-up, configuration, layout and construction of the concert stage area." The suit alleges that the stage was "erected without any inspections or permits" and while inclement weather contributed to the collapse, event officials ignored early weather warnings that could have prevented the deaths.  Rene Lynch, LA Times  08/20/2011
