Foam Manufacturers Settle RI Nightclub Fire Suit

The ABA Journal reports that several foam insulation manufacturers have agreed to a $30 million settlement in the Rhode Island nightclub fire suit in which a pyrotechnics display during a Great White performance ignited a fire at a Rhode Island nightclub, and killed 100 people.  As USA Today notes, this brings the total settlement to over $101 million.   Remaining defendants include the State of Rhode Island and Anheuser-Busch, Inc.   (For more on the prior settlements, see these prior posts here, here and here).
