Partial E2 Tragedy Settlement

A partial settlement has been made involving the E2 nightclub tragedy.

The $1.5 million settlements reportedly cover civil suits against the club owner, manager and another person.

Civil suits are still pending against the City of Chicago and Clear Channel Communications.

Twenty-one people died and another 95 were injured in a crowd crush during a stampede at the E2 February 17, 2003.
