GERING, Neb. (AP) — A former Nebraska beauty queen's lawsuit over injuries she suffered when a bull charged at her at a 2010 county fair has been dismissed.

Scottsbluff radio station KNEB reports (http://bit.ly/1aHMwiH ) Scotts Bluff County District Judge Leo Dobrovolny ruled Tuesday that defendants in the case were not served within the required six months after the lawsuit was filed in August 2012.

Jessica Littlejohn and her father filed the suit against entities including the Scotts Bluff County Agricultural Society, the Scotts Bluff County Fair Board and the County Scholarship Fair Pageant. Scotts Bluff County was dismissed from the case last March.

A bull broke loose as Littlejohn and pageant contestants were being introduced to a crowd. The lawsuit claimed the county entities were negligent for not securing the bull.
