Stage collapse litigation may continue for years

Indianapolis — Lawsuits against up to 15 potential defendants in the Indiana State Fair stage collapse have been combined into one. The collapse that claimed the lives of seven people and injured more than 40 others, occurred a year ago Monday.

Tony Patterson, of Parr Richey Obremskey Frandsen & Patterson, a Lebanon law firm, is one of three liaison counsels for the plaintiffs.

Indiana has already paid $5 million to victims of the collapse, and has added $6 million to a proposed $7.2 million settlement from stage owner Mid-America Sound Corp. and James Thomas Engineering. That payment, which requires victims to agree not to sue, is pending approval from the two companies.
