Indiana Stage Collapse Leads to Lawsuit, Challenges

Most people know that a stage collapsed during the Indiana State Fair, killing several people.  Not surprisingly, survivors of the victims have filed suit.  One suit challenges both Indiana's $5 million total cap on damages in claims seeking damages from the state and seeks to make damages available for surviving same-sex partners.  (Indiana does not recognize same-sex marriage.)
