Dixie Chick Lawsuit Dismissed!

| Filed under: Legal MattersDixie Chicks


Natalie Maines is one lucky lady!

The lawsuit against the singer, filed by Terry Hobbs for defamation, has been dismissed!

In a letter on her website, Natalie accused Hobbs of being involved in the death of his son and two other 8-year boys that took place in Arkansas 15 years ago.

Three teenagers were convicted of the deaths, yet many, including Maines, believe that they are innocent.

U.S. District Judge Brian Miller threw out the case because Hobbs could not prove "actual malice" as she did not believe the statements to be false nor did she make them with "reckless disregard" for the truth.

    I can NOT stand her. She is a HUGE disgrace to the State of Texas. I wish someone would ban her from Texas and the US too.

  2. 2

    I'm pretty sure she's nuts.

    Natalie was right about Bush and there has been way worse said about him. And before anyone says anything about her hair, she cut it for locks of love a cancer charity that makes wigs from donated hair.

    This chick needs to shut up for once. God i cant stand her. I absolutely loved the Dixie Chicks but i cant stand when they take their political beliefs to the extreme. I respect freedom of speach, but please have some sort of moral concience about what you say especially when it comes to the lives of childeren that were shamelessly murdered. WHAT A HORRIBLE WOMAN. Shame on her, SHAME

    perez, i actually believe he was the childs step father… and she has every right to believe that those (then) teens didnt kill those boys because the judge who ruled over the case was corrupt. the boys step father was involved and it was covered up with testimonies by mail order degree doctors and a corrupt D.A. watch "paradise lost" and "paradise lost 2". you will see that she isnt crazy.

    I dunno about any of that stuff. And as far as being a "disgrace" as the TexAsshole baby above bleated, well, it comes down to TexAss being the nation's disgrace, along with their shitbag excuse for a former governor and last Party of Limbaugh occupant of the White House the illegitimely ensconced former pResident Gee Dubya Bullshit.


    As for Natalie Maines herself, well, she only spoke truth back then. And unlike TexAsshole and the likes of Twatney Sperms why Maines can actually sing, plays a variety of instruments and looks cute and perky as neither TexAssholeBaby or Twatney could ever be.

    Sorry to call y'all out, but the West Memphis 3 case is just crazy. All kinds of evidence alluded that Terry Hobbs did have something to do with the death of those children. There are 3 people in prison that have been railroaded due to police misconduct & a buncha crazy ass redneck prosecutors. I for one was glad to see that there are still people talking about this case. It's a travesty of the American Justice system.

    Re: HayHayBabes – He is the stepfather. His wife "mysteriously" died-a possible witness?, & when bite marks were discovered on the victims, & the police were forced to ask Hobbs for dental impressions, um, he conveniently had all of his teeth removed. The whole story is nutso.

    You should look into this, Perez. She is one of the MANY people campaigning for the West Memphis Three to be released from prison because, simply put, they did NOT commit the crime which they have been in jail for for 16 years.

    I think Natalie is awesome, and I Love the DCX, and their music, also before anyone calls her crazy for speaking out on this issue, I suggest you watch Paradise Lost, and Paradise Lost 2, and you will see where she is coming from, She isn't the only one who has spoken out on behalf of the WM3, alot of Celebs have!

  12. 12

    Kelly McGillis and Meredith Baxter waited forever to come out. How long will Natalie wait????????????? Just askin'

    Free the West Memphis 3! Kudos, Natalie.

  15. 15

    She looks cute with her hair that way. She was so right about bush, she did not deserve the backlash

  16. 16

    Natalie Maines is a dumb bitch.

  17. 17

    free the west memphis three!! terry hobbs did it!

    Re: Bluebonnet – and you ma'am are an idiot.

    Just from her history, she should learn to think before she speaks. The Bush comment, true or not, really hurt her career and lost a lot of her right wing fan base. Just from a marketing point of view, she should probably think before she speaks. I love the DC and their music, but speaking out about a case she's not involved in is pretty dangerous. Just because she has the right to speak, and accessible media to broadcast it, doesn't mean she has to use it.

    what is going on with the west memphis 3? Are they still just sitting in jail? That is the most horrifying story. Watch Paradise Lost - truly disturbing. These teenagers pretty much got charged with murder because they wore black and listened to Metalica.

  21. 21

    Re: Louweezy – You are thinking about John Mark Byers, step-father to Christopher Byers. Byers is now a supporter of the West Memphis 3 and is not a suspect. This is about Terry Hobbs is who they now believe is the real killer due to his DNA and his friends DNA being found on one of the victims. He is the step-father of Stevie Branch.

    Damien is still on death row, Jessie and Jason are still in prison serving their terms, also…there was dna that linked Hobbs to the crime scene…john mark byers was my number one suspect for a long time, but idk…the whole thing is effed up

    Re: Amelapa – ooh, my bad. thanks for the correction.

  26. 26

    I love Natalie and The Dixie Chicks! People can't stand someone with an opinion who speaks their mind and that is just sad! And those who still have their panties in a bunch about the whole President Bush comment - get over it! I suggest everyone watch The Chicks documentary Shut Up And Sing to get some insight on what these women went through during that time.

    this is the next old bag to come out and declare she is a lesbian.

    I remember when that happened. I am from Memphis and was about 12 at the time. It is a modern day Salem Witch Trial. Read up on it at WM3.org or just google it. It is truly scarry that in 2009 in the United States of America you can still be serving life/on death row for something you didn't do because you were coerced by the police into making a statement or because you look different from everyone else. Scarry, scarry!

    Maybe Nathan Petrelli beat the dude up

    FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. 31

    Free the WM3!!!!! for you non-informed jerks that are making comments, utilize some of your wasted "computer time" and research on the WM3.org. then you'll see that TERRY HOBBS!!!!!! should be #1 SUSPECT!!! Much respect to Ms. Natalie for speaking up on ther behalf! Stay strong Damien, Jessie, and Jason!!!

    It matters that you speak your own truth. The people that mind don't matter, and the people that don't mind, do.
