DIXIE CHICKS lead singer NATALIE MAINES has been cleared by a federal judge over a lawsuit from 2008 (NET NEWS 12/04). The judge ruled that MAINES will be able to recoup her court costs and attorney fees from the suit.
MAINES was sued by TERRY HOBBS, the stepfather of one of three boys who was murdered in ARKANSAS in 1993. MAINES made statements on her website about HOBBS, implicating that he was guilty of the crimes.
The case was dismissed last year and the judge ruled YESTERDAY (4/19) that HOBBS must reimburse NATALIE $17,590 in legal fees.
