Sugarland video depositions slated for next week

April 3, 2012

Members of the country duo Sugarland will give video depositions from West Virginia next week in lawsuits over the Indiana State Fair stage collapse that killed seven people and injured dozens of others.

Attorney Ken Allen said Tuesday that Sugarland members Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will give the depositions April 12th and 13th in Charleston.

The testimony will focus on whether Sugarland resisted delaying the start of their Aug. 13 concert despite threatening weather. The stage and rigging collapsed onto fans amid high winds.

A judge ordered the depositions last month in lawsuits against Mid-America Sound Corp., the company that owns the stage and rigging that collapsed. Allen represents some of the plaintiffs in that case.

Mid-America denies it did anything to warrant the stage collapse.
