2011 Indiana State Fair Victim Appealing Legal Suing Cap

A 13-year-old girl injured in the State Fair stage collapse three years ago is asking an appeals court to throw out the legal cap on what the state can be sued for. Indiana law limits what a person can collect in damages from the state to 700-thousand dollars. Jordyn Polet's attorney isn't challenging that, but Robert Peck argues a five-million-dollar cap on the total the state can payout in a single incident means people aren't being treated equally.  Solicitor General Tom Fisher argues Jordyn‘s offer was equal to everyone else‘s: 65-percent of her medical bills. There‘s no indication when the court will rule.
