The Associated Press reports that several wrongful death suits have been filed against SXSW organizers, accusing them of lapses in safety.
Steven Craenmehr, a Dutch executive who worked at MassiveMusic, was one of the victims of the accident. Craenmehr’s family filed a wrongful death suit, accusing SXSW of not having proper traffic safeguards.
SXSW’s lawyer released a general statement, saying: “Our hearts continue to ache for those injured and the families of those who lost their lives.” The statement also says that SXSW “looks forward” to the prosecution of the drunk driver.
