Sugarland Principles Settle Kristen Hall's $14 Million Lawsuit
The two Sugarland band members and the founding member of the group have settled their lawsuit. In the suit she had claimed over $14 million was owed to her.
This week Timothy Batten Sr., U.S. District Judge, signed an order stating that he had been notified by the parties of the deal. He gave both sides until December 13 for finalizing settlement documents. The court records don’t list the settlement details.
Kristen Hall filed the lawsuit in 2008. She founded Sugarland in 2002. According to Hall, she should get one third of profits from the group from Sugarland members Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles, even thought she left the group in 2005 in order to pursue her career as a soloist.
There has been a trial scheduled to start on Monday for the case.
