Station Night Club Fire: What

Rodgers, Jr. (Rodgers, 2006). The “no contest” plea, said Rodgers, will “alleviate the victims families and broader community from being subjected to an emotional reliving of the tragedy at trial.”

Moreover, the judge said the “no contest” plea actually means that the defendants (Jeffrey Derderian and Michael Derderian) accept responsibility for installing foam in the club that was not fireproof. The Rhode Island Fire Code requires fireproof insulation and foam for buildings like the club in question.
