Nearly 200 lawsuits have been filed so far after the tragic crowd surge at Astroworld that left ten people dead. The family attorney of 27-year-old Danish Baig filed a lawsuit Friday, saying, "The last time Danish's fiance heard his voice was him screaming her name out in terror while he was trying to save her life." ABC13 legal analyst Steve Shellist says with so many lawsuits he doubts they will go to a jury trail. He anticipates they will settle outside of court, saying insurance companies will pay more than they want to, plaintiffs will end up taking much less than they want to, and both sides will walk away unhappy. Shellist adds he expects it take years for these civil lawsuits to get resolved.
