Supreme Court approves State Fair move

The Nebraska Supreme Court has approved the Nebraska State Fair's move to Grand Island.

The court's ruling released Friday morning should end the legal fight over the 2008 law that called for the fair to vacate its home of 110 years in Lincoln. The legal challenge focused on whether the law requiring the move created a special benefit for some of the groups and people involved in the plan, such as the nonprofit group that owns Fonner Park in Grand Island and the University of Nebraska. And the lawsuit said lawmakers didn't seem to consider other options besides Grand Island.

The Supreme Court rejected those arguments and upheld an earlier dismissal of the lawsuit. This year's State Fair in Grand Island is scheduled to be held from Aug. 27 to Sept. 6.
