Temporary Restraining Order Stands in Way of Warrior Dash

The Kaufman County District Attorney filed an ex parte Temporary Restraining Order last week, to prevent Red Frog Events LLC from holding the Warrior Dashthis weekend. The TRO was granted without any notice to Red Frog Events and was based on an erroneous assumption that all 18,000 participants would be at the event for the entire time.

Once we were able to get in front of the Judge, we were able to convince them that each race was staggered every 30 minutes and only 500 people were in each race. The Judge agreed that the number of participants expected at the event at any one time would be far greater than what the County had originally thought.

Kaufman County ruled that the event could go on as long as the organizers were able to prevent the type of numbers of that would trigger the Mass Gatherings Act.

Organizers are confident that they can keep the numbers below that amount.

To satisfy the Sheriff’s concerns about the expected traffic congestion on FM 740, the Court ordered organizers to have off-site parking facilities available and to bus in the participants. Organizers are currently working on finalizing locations for off-site parking.

Michael Cramer, Managing Attorney of the Business Litigation department of Bailey & Galyen, was brought in by Red Frog Events to fight the Kaufman County TRO. Mr. Cramer was in court in Kaufman County until 8:30 last night. Mr. Cramer has built a reputation as a tenacious litigator who zealously fights for his clients.

Mr. Cramer and the Warrior Dash promoters have scheduled a meeting with Dallas County officials this afternoon to discuss any concerns they may have, in light of the fact that Kaufman County is allowing the event to take place. Legal Website Services  ATTORNEY ADVERTISING
