FIRE SUITS FILED: 226 victims and families of those caught in the Great White fire filed a class action lawsuit against 46 defendants in Providence Superior Court on Thursday. Amongst those 46 are those you'd expect - the band, their management and the club owners - and some that don't quite seem to make much sense, including a bus company. Quite a few strike us at this stage as being speculative, or at best done on the basis of "who's got a few bob and vaguely connected with the case?", so the local radio station and Clear Channel are lumped in on the grounds that they "knew or should have known" that Great White "customarily utilized pyrotechnics... repeatedly, openly and illegally."
