RAMSEY COUNTY

The decision to deny a temporary injunction was made by Ramsey County District Court Judge Laura Nelson on the eve of the 2021 fair’s opening day. It isn’t a final resolution to a lawsuit filed this month by the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus and some of its members, and an appeal is possible.
The Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus and two people who want to go to the fair armed filed a lawsuit Tuesday, Aug. 10, that contends the Minnesota State Agricultural Society lacks the authority to impose the restriction. Ramsey County, whose sheriff is directing fair security this year, is also named as a defendant.
“For decades, the Minnesota State Fair has maintained its own police department to oversee law enforcement and security during the Fair and year-round at the Fairgrounds,” State Fair general manager Jerry Hammer said. “We’ve determined that the most effective and efficient way to provide the best possible public safety is to partner with an outside agency.”
The Ramsey County judge said he would aim to issue a decision next week in cases the localities need to make changes.
