W.Va. festival death lawsuit headed to mediation

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — The father of a South Carolina woman killed at the All Good Music Festival in West Virginia will try to settle his lawsuit against eight of the defendants.

A court filing by Kim Miller says mediation will begin June 4. Other defendants are welcome to participate.

Miller’s lawsuit and two others filed after the July 2011 accident near Masontown are to be tried together in federal court in Clarksburg in August.

Nicole Miller died, and friends Rosie Doran and Yen Ton were injured when a pickup truck slid down a hillside and plowed into the tent where they slept. All are from Mount Pleasant, S.C.

The lawsuits target a dozen parties, including driver Clay Lewin of Cape Charles, Va., Maryland-based Walther Productions, Marvin’s Mountaintop LLC, and security and parking companies.
