Balloon lawsuit against UNL dismissed

Posted By: KLKN Newsroom

A lawsuit filed against the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has been dismissed by a federal judge.

Randall Krause, of Omaha, filed the suit against UNL for releasing red balloons during Husker football games.

Krause said the balloons are bad for the environment.

On Friday, a judge ruled, because it is a state agency, UNL is immune from such a lawsuit.
