Judge: Sugarland Must Give Depositions in April

Band's attorneys had asked for respite until May.

Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland have been ordered to give depositions next month in lawsuits over August’s deadly Indiana State Fair stage collapse, according to the Associated Press.

Attorneys for stage builder Mid-America Sound Corp. had requested the depositions begin Monday (March 26), but Marion Superior Court Judge Theodore Sosin on Friday (March 23) approved a request by the band’s attorneys to reject that timetable.

As previously reported, Sugarland’s attorneys said the band is preparing for a tour and proposed holding depositions in May.

The judge instead ordered attorneys to provide dates and times between April 1 and April 15 in which Jennifer and Kristian can testify.

Mid-America built the roof and rigging used to hold lights and sound equipment that collapsed Aug. 13 before the scheduled Sugarland concert. Seven people died and dozens were injured.
