CNN has more on the settlement, tentatively reached between the plaintiffs and some of the multiple defendants. The settling defendants include the maker of soundproofing material, the pyrotechnics maker and vendor, the company that leased the building, and an alarm company. The parties have recommended that Francis McGovern (Duke) oversee the distribution of the money as a special master.
A number of defendants remain, including concert promoters and Home Depot.
