Haggard Awarded Legal Fees

Merle Haggard was awarded an estimated $101,000 in attorney’s fees in a failed lawsuit against him, thanks to a Texas judge’s ruling June 5th.

A breach of contract suit, filed against the country legend in October 2004 by promoter Kathy Schroeder, had previously been dismissed, according to the Kerrville Daily Times.

The promoter was judged to lack standing to sue Haggard because she has no ownership interest in Pedernales Music Productions, the company Haggard held a contract with, the Daily Times said.
