AMARILLO -- A federal judge is ordering that the American Quarter Horse Association has to pay the attorney's fees for plaintiffs in a recent lawsuit.
Yesterday, Judge Mary Lou Robinson announced that the AQHA will have to pay Jason Abraham and Gregg Veneklasen more than $891,000 in attorney's fees.
In July, the jury said the AQHA had violated sections one and two of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and parts of the Texas Free Enterprise and Anti-Trust Act by not allowing cloned horses in their registry.
According to the verdict, AQHA also caused damage to Abraham and Veneklasen but no money was awarded to the plaintiffs at that time.
