Station Night Club Fire Lawsuit Settled for $176 Million

West Warwick, RI: A settlement of $176 million has been approved by a federal judge, ending a lengthy lawsuit stemming from the infamous nightclub fire in Rhode Island in 2003. The Station Night Club fire killed 100 people.

The settlement monies will be distributed among survivors of the fire who were severely injured, and the many children who lost their parents in the fire. A trust fund will be set up to hold funds for more than 300 people affected by the fire.

The settlement was reached prior to going to trial. The defendants in the case include the club's owners, foam manufacturers, Anheuser-Busch, Clear Channel Broadcasting and the town of West Warwick.

Criminal charges were brought in 2006 against the club owners and the tour manager for Great White, the band playing at the time of the fire. They all pleaded no contest to 100 counts of involuntary manslaughter, and have subsequently served their prison sentences.
