INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The company that built stage rigging involved in August's Indiana State Fair stage collapse wants a judge to order members of country band Sugarland to provide depositions in lawsuits filed over the deadly accident.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/x8BPoL ) Mid-America Sound Corp. has asked a Marion Superior Court judge to order Sugarland and its ownership company, Lucky Star Inc., to give depositions next week. The judge has scheduled a Friday hearing on that request.

Mid-America built the roof and rigging used to hold lights and sound equipment that collapsed Aug. 13 before a scheduled Sugarland concert, killing seven people and injuring 58 others.

Court documents filed by Mid-America indicate it wants the depositions completed before Sugarland's duo of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush begins a five-month tour in April.
