Booking Company Sues Shark

Cheyenne, Wy – A booking company for Cheyenne Frontier
Days is suing an animal rights group in the wake of a decision by
the Matchbox Twenty pop rock band to pull out of a scheduled
performance this summer.
The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Cheyenne by Omaha,
Neb.-based Romeo Entertainment Group.
It seeks a court order to stop the group called SHARK, which
stands for Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, from contacting
any entertainers that have agreed or may agree in the future to
perform at Frontier Days.
The lawsuit contends SHARK was using inaccurate and misleading
information in its effort to persuade entertainers to drop their
performances in Cheyenne.
