The Star and RTV6 are this morning both reporting that the first lawsuits have been filed in the State Fair stage collapse tragedy.
The RTV6 story indicates the lawsuit, filed on behalf of Tammy VanDam, who was killed in the tragedy, is asking for an injunction to preserve all evidence.
The Star’s story’s headline indicates it is asking for $60 million in damages. That story is currently accompanied with a non-functioning web link, at least for mobile devices, so I can’t follow up.
Except to start seeing a lot more of this. Nearly everyone involved will be filing lawsuits in the coming months. They will fill our news for some time.
UPDATE – Found a working link to the Star’s story via author Jon Murray’s Twitter account and added it.
