Next week (April 12 and 13) Sugarland will give video depositions from Virginia for the lawsuits filed after the Indiana State Fair stage collapse which killed and maimed several of their fans, according to WISH TV 8, a Marion County, Indiana station.
At question is whether the group refused to postpone their concert in the face of foreboding weather conditions.
In response to various lawsuits filed against the band following the incident, James H. Milstone, the band's lawyer, argued in the court documents that Sugarland did not commission, design, or build the stage, and should not be liable.
"The incident at issue in this litigation resulted from a gust of wind of unprecedented intensity which caused a structure that may have been improperly designed, maintained and/or inspected to fail. As such, this was a true accident or act of God."
The band, which is currently touring, is set to be in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, on April 10 and 11; and in Pikeville, Kentucky, on April 13.
