The focus of the Sugarland lawsuit concerning the August stage collapse at the duo’s Indiana State Fair show is now turned away from the band and instead pointed at their tour manager, Hellen Rollens — the very woman credited with saving the lives of every band member that tragic day.
Sugarland have long been embroiled in a lawsuit surrounding the August 13, 2011 stage collapse at their show at the Indiana State Fair. Now, responding to lawsuits coming at them, they’re claiming one last time that the incident, which left seven dead and more than 40 injured, was not their fault.
Victims of the August 13 Indiana State Fair stage collapse are seeking justice. Forty-four survivors of the tragedy, as well as family members of those who died in the horrific accident, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against those associated with the production of the show — including Sugarland.
Thousands of people were gathered at an outdoor stage at the Indiana State Fair on Saturday night when high winds from a storm caused the stage rigging to collapse, killing five and injuring at least 40 others, multiple outlets report.
