Though the fire was a tragedy, I do not see how companies like Home Depot, Budweiser, etc. are responsible... Responsiblity lies totally with the club, club management, the band with used the pyrotechnics, and the Fire Dept. which is responsible for inspections... The families that have had these lawsuits brought up against these other companies by ambulance chaser lawyers are just supporting the fact that tragedies like this have become oppertunities for "money grabbing"... A typical retainer fee for the lawyers is 1/3 of the settlement amount, over 40 million dollars so far...

Why do these people keep filing lawsuits against these companies OK we all feel shattered about this tragity but what did the Beer companies have to do with it, They promoted it! So what NOT everyone drank beer that night! what about let sue Captain Morgan, Or Baccardi?? or the picture on the wall! This is just the world we live in sue everyone! Are they devistated or just need to make a buck? I kinow its mean to say Heck I hate beer But enough already!

These lawsuits have gotten completely ridiculous!!! Maybe we all should sue the idiots who keep trying to sue people who had nothing to do with the cause of the fire, just because we don't want to continue hearing/reading about their money-hungry, completely hypocritical ways!!! How do these idiots sleep at night!?!
