Colorado group sues Lincoln Saltdogs, UNL

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The organizers of a concert held last summer at Lincoln's Haymarket Park are suing a Lincoln-based minor league baseball team, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and its baseball stadium for fraud and breach of contract.

Tim Tucker, owner of a Colorado entertainment company who proposed last summer's Bluesmasters Concert, filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Nebraska's U.S. District Court.

The lawsuit accuses Charlie Meyer, president of the Lincoln Saltdogs and representative of concert's venue partners, of secretly adding a clause to the event contract requiring $100,000 upfront payment to the baseball organization, Haymarket Park and the university.

The lawsuit also says those groups wrongly kept all the money from concert ticket sales, leaving Tucker's group to pay performers - including the Allman Brothers Band - and other expenses from its own pocket.
