Payouts Near for Victims, Relatives in 2003 Nightclub Fire

Six years after 100 people died in a fire caused by pyrotechnics during a concert by the band Great White at The Station, a West Warwick, R.I., nightclub, a court settlement of $176 million is about to be distributed to more than 300 people. Gov. Donald Carcieri wants to pay $10 million, which Rhode Island offered to the victims, from federal stimulus money before July 1, The Providence Journal reported yesterday. About 200 people were injured during the fire.

The fire occurred Feb. 20, 2003. The Associated Press and Rhode Island media reported U.S. Magistrate Judge David L. Martin approved the payment plan last Friday and has set a status conference on the case for today.

The plan was created by Francis McGovern, a Duke University law professor hired for that purpose by the victims' lawyers.
