The last two major defendants have settled in the lawsuits arising from the fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, that killed 100 people.  Rhode Island and West Warwick have each agreed to pay $10 million, bringing the total to $175 million.  The most recent settlements include claims relating to allegedly botched inspections and negligent security (performed by an off-duty police officer).
