Kraft Group, town settle conflict over Gillette Stadium

An eleventh-hour compromise over insurance coverage has rescued upcoming concerts and sporting events at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough — a relief not only for the town and stadium owner but also for ticket holders awaiting performers like Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift.

The standoff between the town and the Kraft Group revolved around a decision by the Massachusetts Interlocal Insurance Association, the town’s insurance carrier, to hike the per-person deductible in any stadium legal claim from $7,500 to $50,000. That decision followed a class-action lawsuit filed against the town and its police chief last summer that asserts that scores of people were wrongly placed into protective custody at concerts without proof they were alcohol-impaired.
