A judge rules that Clear Channel Communications will remain a defendant in lawsuits filed in the E2 nightclub tragedy.

Twenty-one people were killed in a stampede to get out of the club in 2003.

Clear Channel employed a disc jockey that plaintiffs say incited the stampede. They had asked a Cook County judge to drop them from various lawsuits.

Relatives of the victims have filed wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits in the tragedy.
