Circus company ordered to stop operating in North DakotaAttorney General Wayne Stenehjem has issued a cease and desist order banning American United Entertainment, also known as Great American Circus of the Stars, of Gainesvile, Texas, from operating in North Dakota.
The company held circus performances in Park River and Grafton in 2009. The entity promised to share a percentage of the ticket sales with the communities, but failed to do so.
Stenehjem requested the Consumer Protection Division to conduct an investigation. He noted that they made repeated contacts with the entities and principals, Jessica Jani and Carol King, also known as Judy J. Kaye and Carrell J. Kaye, and their agents, in an effort to obtain payment and resolve the matter without legal action.
