Suguarland 111109

Two years after the stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, Sugarland has not been able to put the incident behind them.

According to the Indy Star, Fireman's Fund Insurance Co., the firm that insured the band's musical equipment, has filed suit against the State of Indiana, the Indiana State Fair Commission, Thomas Engineering of Tennessee, Mid-America Sound Corp. of Greenfield, the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees Local 30, along with several other companies that helped design and erect the doomed stage.

The band is not named in the suit, but still faces their day in court following the deadly accident. The two are due in court in February 2014 to determine whether they have any liability in the collapse.

The stage collapsed on August 13, 2011, killing seven and injuring nearly 60 more.
