Judge orders Madonna to speak about her ' Hard Candy' Involvement

When Madonna decided to name her fitness apparel and DVD line Hard Candy, we doubt she realized how much trouble a name would cause her.

 Beauty company Hard Candy is suing the “Material Girl” and her business partner for copyright infringement and unfair competition, claiming the Queen of Pop stole its name. In court documents filed earlier this month, the company stated that songstress refused to sit down for a deposition unless a judge ordered her to do so.


 In court documents obtained by Radar, a judge sided with the beauty company, stating, “prior to taking the deposition of Madonna Louise Ciccone, the plaintiff shall take the depositions of the three individuals who filed affidavits in this matter as to jurisdictional contacts with Florida to determine if those individuals have sufficient knowledge regarding jurisdictional matters . . .

“If the three individuals do not have sufficient knowledge as to jurisdictional matters, Ciccone may be subject to deposition,” the documents state.

Originally Madonna wanted this entire lawsuit thrown out. But now that the judge has ordered she speak about her involvement in her company’s business decisions, there will be a lot more to come.
