Chicks Win!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

nmwenn2397895.jpg

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???

    yay for Natalie! Love me some Dixie Chicks : )

    Wow, go her. Even in Australia, I know about that story, and I'm a supporter of it too. Good on her!

    Yup - the America-hating bitch and her skank friends' record sales are in the crapper…and only blind, Democratic, fudge packers like yourself like them anymore.

    As far as the person from Australia, it would figure that an prison continent would like the America-hating bitches known as the Dixie Whores.

    ^^^ wow…hellscream…you are sick and sad.
    Welcome to 1945…get your head out of your ass.
    And btw…those kids did nothing except listen to metal.

    Natalie is a whore.

    Re: HellscreamGold – Ha. I never said I liked The Dixie Chicks, far from it actually. Can't stand to listen to them. However, in a story like this, I'm glad she stood up for herself.



  7. 7

    How is Mr. Hobbs a "hater"? His good name was sullied and he fought to protect himself. Natalie has not been "vindicated," she's been spared.

    The stepfather could be a loving parent for all we know, and Maines's words were hurtful to him. Hobbs does not stand convicted in the murder of the child, so how is he the bad guy here?

    Re: HellscreamGold – Off topic much?
    Too funny-I read what you write here all the time. You calling someone "American hating" is so very hypocritical of you is it not? Everything you ever post here is unpatriotic, homophobic, hateful, angry and nasty. Oh and can't forget stupid. So STFU you ignorant fucking hater. You have no idea what you are talking about -JACKASS!
    Republican scumbag~

    No DNA evidence? Death penalty? WTF???

    Re: caroaber – Couldn't agree more. I wish celebrities would just shut their mouths unless they have something intelligent to say. Ugh, I can't stand Natalie Maines, and she is not hot enough to be married to Adrian Pasdar.



  11. 11

    go Natalie! oh, and haters: how does detesting G. Bush make anyone an America-hater? that makes her an America-Lover in my book! why don't you and Toby Keith go french kiss each other's rectums…

    That actually sounds like some pretty horrible slander against a murdered child's parents. She sounds like a real class act.



  13. 13

    Winning a judgement and actually collecting on it are two VERY different things. She's still responsible for her legal fees and I hope Mr. Hobbs tells that skank to shove it!



  14. 14

    Natalie's a fucking bitch! NOBODY gives a shit what you think, you skanky stupid slut!! STOP TALKING!!



  15. 15

    The Dixie Chicks are the only country music act I like. (That includes Taylor Swift.)



  16. 16

    Fantastic!Now, this evidence has been brought to light since the synofsky-berlinger documentaries. why is no one looking into this after so many years???



  17. 17

    those kids may deserve a retrial…but she needs to shrivel up and go away. I cannot stand her

    Yes Australia was formed by prisoners by the UK on land stole from Aborigines but it has made Australia/Australian's have a strong sense of social justice..
    *
    Our nation was formed by a vote not by a WAR…
    It has said sorry for the wrongs of the past!
    *
    Hating George Bush doesn't make one American hating.. The whole world hates him. Why he isn't in jail for crime against humanity with his illegal war his lying to the American and international people, his theft from America and his destruction of the global economy I fail to understand!
    *
    You clearly are a woman hating uneducated inbreed… You may want get familiar with a history book Australia is the only nation in the world that has come to America's aid and fought side by side in every major war… the good ones and the bad!
    *
    The travesty that is the treatment of the West Memphis Three should be condemned by every America! If that's American justice every American should be afraid!

    Way to go Natalie, this goes to show, You don't mess with the Dixie Chicks!

    Re: Aussieone – I know that everyone has the right to speak their mind, regardless of what country you are from, but I gotta tell ya — these Aussies on this board are really, really annoying me. It would be one thing to simply "weigh in" on a topic, but saying Bush is the most hated President, and that the GOP had to "invent a tea party?" Please educate yourself on the issue before speaking, or else stick to bashing your own country's politics. Or do you really consider yourselves such expert on US domestic matters, because I will honestly say I know NOTHING about Australian politics.



  25. 25

    Re: Missy1982 – Well here's one American to say it.
    GWB is the most hated president EVER- GLOBALLY! Look from THAT perspective!
    And I know what these teabaggers are up to. A bunch of angry white people pissed off because we have a black president and/or imaginary taxes. They are crazy listening to Fox news propaganda and are driven by FEAR! Scared and angry at made up shit! That's all the GOP has- FEAR and STUPID people to buy it! Annoying? I'll annoy you much worse!
    So don't even go there.

    Re: supersongbird – You're a fairly ignorant person, let me inject some facts towards your post. FACT, in both Gallop and Pew polling, Obama"s approval rating has dropped the fastest of any modern President. FACT Obama has the of the lowest approval rating on any President at this point in his Presidency since Gallop has taken this poll, 60 years.
    FACT Obama is the most divisive modern President, and that's taking into account the 2000 recount election. FACT George Bush won more seats in the House and Senate in both the off year election 2002 and in 2004. FACT Obama and democrats are going to get creamed election 2010, that's a big indication ( even a idiot like you can not dismiss) that Obama and his policies are not liked very much.

    And I can't say how heartening it is to hear people from the "party of tolerance", throw around a gay slur to describe a whole group of Americans.



  32. 32

    Funny how a country that is over 65% white elects a minority black-man as leader, (which hasn't' happened in any other industrialised country including Australia, from whom the poster Aussie, doesn't even know his/her own country up until 1974 , minorities weren't even allowed to immigrate into Australia)

    but now that people are rejecting Obama and democrats, big government, big spending, favouring unions, taking over the nations healthcare, student loans, car companies, banks, insurance companies agenda the country is a bunch of racists, who don't like Obama because he's black, as if he hadn't been black before becoming President.
    Can't win with the left they need identity, divisive politics or they will never win a national election, without blacks , who make up 12% of the population, voting 90% to 95% on mass for democrats they would be doomed in elections So they have to keep hate and racist propaganda going.

    And in modern Presidencies both Truman and Carter had lower approval rating then Bush when they left the office.

    Maybe instead of paying attention to your feelings about the Dixie Chicks or the rest of the bullshit tangents on here, you pay attention to the real story and go to freewestmemphis3.org or wm3.org to read about something that really matters. I imagine(being her whole point from the start here btw) that she only cares about this "win" and any money she saved to help these innocent boys. Oh yeah, and the fucker she "won" against, raped and murdered 3 little boys, including his own.

    Re: gooddeeds – Oh I'm ignorant? Well now, why do you think Obama's approval rating is down? Because everyone thinks like you? The majority of Americans voted for Obama based on his policies and proposed agenda. Instead of pushing it through when he had the chance he decided to go "bi-partisan" and be a WIMP! That's why his rating is down in my book-many other Americans feel the SAME WAY.
    As for getting re-elected-it comes down to this: Angry middle-aged white people who have no idea they have been LIED to vs. American youth who can see very clearly the progress that is needed to make our country great again.
    We'll see. Sorry "teabagger" hurt your feelings. Not necessarily a "gay slur" either. I didn't coin that one! Brought that on yourselves didn't you?

    Re: gooddeeds – If you are going to sit there and say racism isn't a factor in the um "Teaparty Cult" then you are delusional or lying. What do YOU think should be done about health care? NOTHING? If this was McCain's bill that passed bet you wouldn't blink an eye! He had a similar one no? THE MANDATE IS A REPUBLICAN IDEAL!!! Ask Mitt Romney!
    You scream soc. that is BULLSHIT! Same was said about public schools, water systems, highways, state and nationals parks and now health care!
    "Keep your government hands off my Medicare" are you fucking kidding me????
    People like you cannot accept the fact that you lost-big thanks to Sarah Palin!
    Can't even acknowledge Obama as your president! Some patriotism!

    Re: gooddeeds – You appear to be actually quoting from some Fox news report. That where you get ALL of your information? Think you may be pulling those stats out of your ASS too!
    All about "low spending" when it comes to things that help middle class Americans. But go ahead and start 2 bullshit wars spending is just fine and dandy! Trillions and trillions $$$ not to mention lives-ok in your world? Spend away Georgie-I voted for you! What sense does that make? Please tell me!
    Bush lied to the world about Iraq! He took his eye off the ball in Afganistan and missed the prize! He is hated globally! Obama is reaching out to the world leaders trying to do damage control and is doing a fine job of it!
    Bush is the MOST HATED PRESIDENT EVER!

    Re: gooddeeds – Are you annoyed yet? Come on back I'll keep going!
    The whole teaparty CULT is fueled by FEAR, LIES and yes RASCISM! These people were told their taxes went up when in actuality TAXES WENT DOWN for over 95% of Americans! I got a TAXCUT last year-most of us did! These people haven't a fucking clue what's up with taxes! Not a clue what this healthcare bill is about and not a clue that THEY ARE THE ONES BENEFITING from this! It is simply an attack on the STUPID to-(yes like Aussie states)-make the GOP relevent again! Who else-WHAT else they got? Who's going to run in 2012? Sarah Palin? LOL! Hope so! That's a BIG WIN for Obama!
    Teabaggers make a lot of noise but what made Obama electable is the diverse and young population of this country!
    Let me guess, you are either in the VAST minority of those whose taxes may go up OR you bought the lie too! Which is it?

    Bill Hemrick the man who has always been the TOP donor to the GOP is also the same man that financed the start up and continuation of the Tea Party movement.

    Do any of you actually know the facts of this case? Natalie Maines wasn't just bagging some poor murdered child's stepdad. His hair was found in a ligature used to tie up one of the three murdered boys - and it wasn't his son. The man who he was with that day's hair was also found at the crime scene. This is the only DNA that was found at the crime scene. He claimed never to have seen the boys the day that they were murdered, but eyewitnesses have come forward to say that this is untrue. While this may not be enough to convict him (although the West Memphis Three were convicted with much less - i.e. nothing), this was simply what Natalie Maines stated, none of which is false, which is why she won the suit. I personally dislike the Dixie Chicks music, but at least someone is standing up for the West Memphis Three and ensuring their story is not forgotten so hopefully they can be released very soon.
    Also as an Australian, I would appreciate that uneducated individuals cease bagging Australians for no good reason other that they may disagree with your unfounded opinions.
