Sugarland Deposition, A Marion County judge will hear arguments Friday on a request to compel country duo Sugarland to be deposed next week in lawsuits over last summer’s deadly Indiana State Fair stage collapse.
Mid-America Sound Corp., the company that built the rigging, has asked a Marion Superior Court judge to order Sugarland and its ownership company, Lucky Star Inc., to give depositions next week, before duo Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush begin a five-month tour in April.
But attorneys for the group filed a motion Wednesday asking for a protective order to delay the depositions. “Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush have not refused to give depositions; they are simply refusing to be bullied into doing so on short notice without sufficient time to prepare,” spokesman Allan Mayer said in a statement. “They and we very much share in the anguish of all those touched by this terrible tragedy, but no one’s interests are served by trying to short-circuit the legal process.”
Despite their upcoming tour, Mayer said Nettles and Bush have volunteered to make themselves available for depositions in May, their representative said.
Mid-America built the roof and rigging used to hold lights and sound equipment that collapsed Aug. 13 before a scheduled Sugarland concert, killing seven people and injuring 58 others.
