Tx Supreme Court to Hear Bonfire Collapse Arguments
The Aggie Bonfire has been discontinued since the 1999 collapse.
The Texas Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on a construction company's motions for rehearing involving the 1999 Texas A&M University bonfire collapse.
Zachry Construction Corp. is attempting to make the university at least partly responsible in the remaining lawsuits arising from the collapse which killed 12 people and injured 27 others.
The court is scheduled to hear arguments at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Texas A&M was a Zachry co-defendant. A $2.1 million dollar settlement was reached last October.
Ben Taylor, one of the attorneys representing the construction company, could not comment on the case to The Associated Press.
