Indiana May Face Additional Liability For State Fair Stage Collapse

INDIANAPOLIS (CelebrityAccess) — A ruling by the Indiana Court of Appeals may leave the state liable for some of the liability of a company that provided staging that collapsed during a concert at the Indiana State Fair in 2011.

According to the Associated Press, the appeals court ruled that a trial judge had failed to articulate the basis for his ruling that the state did not need to indemnify Mid-America Sound Corp. The company had claimed that the state was financially responsible for the contract and the company's court costs.

The ruling means the state could be liable an undetermined amount of damages. Attorney General Greg Zoeller plans to appeal the decision to the state's Supreme Court. – Staff Writers
