Yikes!! This keeps getting messier and messier!!
After denying any responsibility in the stage collapse that killed seven Indiana State Fair attendees, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles has been ordered to testify!
In case U need a refresher course, the Fair Commission's executive director is insisting the band refused to delay the concert even though weather warnings were looking brutal!
So now Jenny has to go

Last August, a terrible tragedy at a Sugarland concert occurred in Indiana when the stage collapsed during a freak wind storm, injuring 58 people and killing 7!
Of course people were angry so they filed a civil suit for negligence last November against nearly every party involved, including the band, Live Nation, ESG Security and the stagehand union.
Well, Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are denying any wrongdoing and pushing the blame on the highest power in the universe, as court documents revealed:

This is by far, one of the most despicable moments of the year.
Two Indiana women tried to collect some cash by faking injuries from the tragic Sugarland concert in August.
Stephanie Murry and Sandra Hurn tried to dip their hands in the cookie jar. The state settled in court and built a relief fund for the victims of the concert worth five million dollars.
The funny business started when officials told Indiana state police that two shady claims were filed about the incident.
Hurn claimed that Sugarland played "a couple of songs" before the collapse. Sugarland never got on stage.
Turns out: the two women didn't even GO TO THE CONCERT!

As reported earlier, victims of the Sugarland stage collapse have come after the band, the state, and anyone else involved in the mishap.
Sixty-five claimants filed a suit; the state of Indiana has settled to pay the victims a total of five million dollars.
Seven people died while 58 others were injured.
$300K each will go to the estates of the deceased while the remaining victims will divvy up the rest.
63 of the 65 have accepted Indiana's terms. It is one of many lawsuits following the stage collapse.
Sugarland held a free memorial concert in November for the victims.
