Great White Settles

I've had a number of posts about the litigation resulting from the fatal fire at The Station nightclub in Rhode Island during a Great White concert.  The band itself has now chipped in, adding about $1 million to a total settlement of over $175 million.  The settlement, one of the smaller ones in the recently-announced series (the foam manufacturers, for example, settled for $30 million), would resolve claims relating to the band's manager's use of pyrotechnics for which he did not have a permit.  (He has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter.)
