    This comes up from time to time and is back in the news. I thought it had all been settled, but apparently it took 6 years to sort out what criminal charges could be filed. This is perhaps the most egregous case of not-listening-to-your-engineers negligence I've ever heard of.

    They were told by an engineer the day it collapsed that it would collapse that day and they didn't close the club. Unbelievable.
