Stage Collapse - More on: Local firm files class action "and will not take a fee from any recovery against the State"

Recall this ILB entry from August 13, 2011. The local firm also issued this press release at the time.

This afternoon Fox 59 has a story headed"Lawsuits filed by witnesses of State Fair tragedy dropped." Some quotes:

The dropped lawsuit was filed by individuals who said they witnessed the tragedy.

Angela Fisher, who was part of the class action suit, said she was traumatized from watching her boyfriend jump into action to help the victims.

Now, the attorneys who filed the suit are withdrawing it, due to lack of evidence to support the claim.

When it was filed, the lawsuit drew outrage from other attorneys and critics who said this was a piggyback lawsuit, cheapening the claims of the real victims of the Indiana State Fair tragedy.
