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.

Chick Sued!

| Filed under: Dixie Chicks

Bad news for one of the Dixie Chicks.

Lead singer Natalie Maines is being sued for defamation by the stepdad of one of three 8-year-old boys killed back in 1993.

The incident involved the death of three kids and their three suspected murderers, Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley.

One of the boys' step-dads, Terry Hobbs, is apparently upset with a comment Natalie made about him.

Maines was at a rally in Little Rock last December when she claimed the three "suspected murderers" were innocent and that new evidence showed step-dad Hobbs was the killer.

Before that she wrote a letter on her site in November 2007 in which she claimed new DNA testing of hair from the crime scene linked Hobbs to the killings, adding that his behavior after the murders showed his guilt.

But the lawsuit claims her remarks are false and Hobbs is seeking compensatory and punitive damages as he claims he's suffered from emotional distress, loss of income, and injury to his reputation.

According to the lawsuit, Maines' statements were "so extreme in degree as to be beyond the pale of decency and to be regarded as atrocious and utterly intolerable in civilized society."

Hobbs said earlier this year that "I want people to know I haven't done nothing wrong. I want them to hear it from me."

New Dixie!

Another great one from Natalie, Martie and Emily!

The Lucky Ones from The Dixie Chicks was originally written as the theme song to the recently released, Neil Burger film of the same name starring Rachel McAdams, Tim Robbins and Michael Pena, but was pulled from the film when no agreement was reached on licensing fees.

As a result, the ladies have decided to release the song on the Internets as a gift to their fans while they are in between songs.

Enjoy!
