(AP) — Calls for an independent investigation into what led to 10 deaths at the Astroworld music festival have gone unheeded.

Houston-area officials instead chose Monday to direct a county administrator to conduct a review with other governmental entities. County Judge Lina Hidalgo had proposed a third-party probe of the planning and execution of the festival founded and headlined by rap superstar Travis Scott.

Other members of Harris County’s governing body, known as a commissioner’s court, were concerned Hidalgo’s investigation could lead to legal liabilities for the county.

Dozens of lawsuits have already been filed over injuries and deaths at the Nov. 5 concert.
