State Fair Files Lawsuit Hoping To Take Back Rights To Aksarben Stock Show
The Nebraska State Fair has filed a lawsuit which will attempt to find out who owns rights to the Aksarben stock show name and logo.
The Nebraska State Fair has sued two men, Trent Loos, an associate to Governor Ricketts, and Greg Harder, a former State Fair employee, of wrongly claiming the name and the stock show’s logo for their own use via a nonprofit corporation they formed a year ago.
Harder used to manage the stock show for the State Fair. But he was fired in September 2020
The two obtained the legal rights to the Stock Show logo after filing with the Nebraska Secretary of State’s Office.
The State Fair wants the name and logo back and, in the lawsuit, says Harder and the Loos have refused to relinquish it.
The attorney representing the State Fair, declined to comment
