Remember back when Matchbox 20 and Carrie Underwood wanted nothing to do with Frontier Days in Cheyenne, WY, possibly due to involvement from animal rights group SHARK? Well, Romeo Entertainment, the booking company of the event, tried to sue SHARK (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness) and its president, Steve Hindi, for shooing away their entertainers with tales of cruelty and animal woe. The claim? That SHARK used “false and misleading information” and “threats of negative publicity”. The result? A dismissal.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Downes ruled that the lawsuit wasn’t filed in the correct state. Another victory for animal rights? Perhaps. Another goofy American lawsuit mistake? Definitely.
