You knew this would happen, Sugarland possibly being sued by families of the victims of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse.  An official law suit hasn’t been filed but the duo has been named as a defendant in a tort claim which states that the band its members, agents and employees could be among 15 potential defendants.  The family of 22 year Jennifer Haskell who was killed by the stage collapse filed the claim.  The claim says “Haskell’s injuries and wrongful death were the proximate result of the defendants’ gross negligence and/or recklessness”.

I’m not sure how I feel about this announcement, on one hand I can’t imagine the pain the family is going through because of their loss and do think that they should be compensated for hospital bills and funeral costs but by who?  Is Sugarland ultimately responsible or is the State of Indiana and the fair responsible or is Mother Nature to blame?  What do you think?
