ATLANTA (AP) - The two members of the country band Sugarland
have settled a lawsuit with the group's founding member, who had
claimed she was owed more than $14 million.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten Sr. signed an order this week
saying the parties notified him of the deal and gave each side
until Dec. 13 to finalize the settlement documents. The details of
the settlement are not listed in court records.
The lawsuit was filed in 2008 by Kristen Hall, who founded the
band in 2002. She said Jennifer Nettles and bandmate Kristian Bush
should have given her a third of the group's profits, even after
she left in 2005 to pursue a solo career.
A trial had been scheduled to begin Monday in the case.
