the company which built the roof and rigging, the stagehands union, and fair officials share blame for the Aug. 13 stage collapse which killed seven people and injured 58 others. 

The staging company , Mid-America Sound, was fined the most, $63 thousand dollars.  The Indianapolis Star reports the Fair Commission and Stagehands received minimal fines too for their role in the collapse.  Music Row also reports some testimony during the investigation pointed fingers toward Sugarland for not delaying the show because they wanted to make a show in Iowa the next night.  Read more on the Music Row story here and more from the Indianapolis Star here.
