They don't play nice and they don't back down and now, The Dixie Chicks are that much richer because of it.
Specifically, Natalie Maines finds herself richer and vindicated as a man who filed a defamation lawsuit against her has been ordered to pay her legal fees.
Back in 2007, Natalie was a huge supporter of the West Memphis Three. She appeared at several rallies to show her allegiance and at one such event, suggests that the stepfather of the murdered boy, Terry Hobbs, was "implicated by DNA evidence found at the crime scene."
After hearing that, Terry turned right around and filed the defamation lawsuit against her, but the judge threw it out, ruling that Terry could not establish "actual malice" on the part of Natalie. Now, he has to cough up $17,590 to cover Natalie's legal fees.
That's another hater taken down by the Dixie Chicks. Anyone else want to give it a try???
