50 claims filed in Indiana State Fair stage collapse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- 50 claims have been filed against the state of Indiana after the deadly State Fair stage collapse August 13th.

The state attorney general says the paperwork is required before a lawsuit can be filed seeking a share of the $5 million available to victims.  Some of the suits include several people from the same family, while other family members have filed suit separately.

Seven people died and more than 40 others were hurt when high winds collapsed the stage at the state fair just minutes before the country band Sugarland was set to perform.
