CBS NEWS is reporting that most of the victims from the concert stage collapse in INDIANAPOLIS, IN on 8/13/11 (NET NEWS 8/14) have now agreed to a monetary settlement. The INDIANA Attorney General’s office revealed that 51 of the 62 eligible claimants have agreed to share a $13.2 million settlement offer.
"This is an expedited and reasonable settlement that puts victims first and will provide for the immediate medical and financial needs now, rather than after waging lengthy and uncertain litigation," said Attorney General GREG ZOELLER.
The concert was to feature MERCURY NASHVILLE duo SUGARLAND.
