Sugarland To Testify Next Week In Stage Collapse Suits

From the Associated PressMembers 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. Sugarland members Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will testify April 12 and 13 from Charleston, West Virginia. 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 ahead of a thunderstorm. A judge ordered the depositions last month in lawsuits against Mid-America Sound Corp., the company that owns the stage and rigging that collapsed. Mid-America denies it did anything to warrant the stage collapse.(Photo from www.sugarlandmusic.com)
