INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court is set to consider whether the state is responsible for some of the legal damages faced by a company that supplied stage rigging that collapsed at a state fair event in 2011, killing seven people.

The justices are scheduled to hear oral arguments Wednesday in the state’s appeal of a March Court of Appeals ruling involving Mid-America Sound Corp.

That ruling found Indiana might be responsible for some legal damages faced by Mid-America, after high winds toppled the stage rigging onto fans awaiting the start of a concert by country duo Sugarland in August 2011.

Mid-America contends the state is financially responsible by contract for the cost of its defense and any judgments against it.
