Sugarland Being Sued & More in Casey’s Taste of Country
Sugarland is being sued by the estates of four people who died during the Indiana State Fair tragedy along with 44 other victims. The complaint was filed Tuesday in Indianapolis by attorneys representing at least 20 law firms from Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. It alleges the band was in breach of reasonable care to the victims. One attorney says Sugarland’s contract specified that they had the final say in whether to cancel the August 13th show due to weather.
