Indiana State Fair settlement sort-of fair

It looks like the people injured when the stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair last year an out-of-court settlement which will see them share USD13.2million. Spread between 62 victims and their survivors, it sounds a lot less like a generous settlement, but those affected are being strongly urged to say yes - not least to avoid having to undergo a gruelling legal fight to get a bigger payout which might prove impossible for the organisers to fund anyway.
