According to a lawsuit filed in July in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, Kristen Hall was to get a cut of the group’s profits even after she left in 2005 for a solo career. The lawsuit also states that Kristen, who founded the band in 2002, has an agreement with Jennifer and Kristian to equally share profits and losses. Kristen says in the lawsuit that she has been excluded from the group’s profits since she left. Sugarland’s publicist referred calls to the band’s attorney, Gary Gilbert, who was unavailable for comment. Kristen co-wrote the band’s debut hit, “Baby Girl,” along with “Something More” and several others.
