Madonna has been ordered to sit for a deposition
Madonna has been ordered to sit for a deposition in the lawsuit brought against her by beauty brand Hard Candy.

The ‘Music’ singer is being sued by beauty firm Hard Candy for allegedly stealing their name for her fitness brand and will now be filmed answering questions from a lawyer as part of the case.

However, judge John O’Sullivan, in making the ruling, also stated the 56-year-old star can only answer questions pertaining to the lawsuit.

The ruling, as obtained by RadarOnline.com, stated: “In the event that Hard Candy’s counsel asks any further questions beyond the scope of permissible discovery during any future depositions, Defendant’s counsel is instructed to object that the question goes beyond the scope, permit the witness to answer the question, and file a motion with the Court if Sanctions are appropriate.”

It was also ruled that Madonna and Live Nation LLC must turn over any licensing agreements in which merchandise is sold in Florida.

The Florida-based cosmetics company accused the ‘Material Girl’ singer of trademark infringement and unfair competition in their lawsuit.

The case claims Madonna began selling her goods under the Hard Candy name in 2011 despite a previous rejection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Hard Candy are seeking financial damages and for Madonna to stop using their name completely.
