Sugarland Sued for Negligence

Forty-four people who were victims of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse last August have filed suit against Sugarland, accusing the Grammy-winning duo of negligence for not canceling their concert after the accident. Seven people died and many more were injured after high winds caused the outdoor stage to collapse onto concertgoers. The country stars had not yet taken the stage when it toppled over. The plaintiffs referenced Sugarland's contract, which stipulates that the group has final say on whether to cancel a show in the event of hazardous weather conditions. They're seeking unspecified damages that would "help the victims pay the medical bills and other financial expenses that they might have incurred from this incident."
