Another Settlement in Rhode Island Club Fire

This time it's $25 million from Sealed Air Corp., whose polyethylene foam may have been used in the building. Sealed Air says that their packaging material was misused as soundproofing -- and contends that the plaintiffs didn't even have evidence that their product was in the building -- but settled for the usual reasons. With that, the total settlement amount is up to $150 million and counting. 100 people died in the blaze, started by pyrotechnics at a Great White concert.
