Appeals court sides with Lori Koch in Holiday World ownership dispute

Posted | Contributed by VitaminsAndGravy

A state Appeals Court ruling allows Lori Koch, the widow of former Holiday World President Will Koch, to retain her controlling interest in the southern Indiana amusement park and not sell out to her brother-in-law Dan Koch. The Appeals Court found that Dan Koch isn’t entitled to buy Lori’s inherited shares because he breached a contract that outlined the procedures for buying shares if a family shareholder died.

I'm kind of relieved at this outcome, which seemed like the right one from my non-legal perspective.

I agree Jeff.

Now the next question is how are they going to work together since Dan still owns a minority interest in the park. IMO they better learn real fast or they just might lose a chunk of business to Kentucky Kingdom.

I eagerly await to see what Dan has to say about this... on here.

LOL. After seeing hoe dan acted here, I wouldn't want him as either a lawyer or as park president. Hope the park can move forward now, as it has been.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

I hope these two realize Holiday World is a Christian style family park and the two of them will soon set a good example by putting aside their differences and working together as a team for the good of all. They have a wonderful park to be proud of and they need to work together, not against each other, and continue to do a great job with their park.

Christians have the market cornered for playing nice? Does that include the Crusades?

What is a Christian "style" family park? It's not a Christian family park, but kind of like one? What park is an actual Christian family park?

Holy Land Experience. Duh. Crucifixions daily, for fun and profit!

I forget about the Holy Land Experience as much as I can.

If it is a "Christian style family park" does that mean free soft drinks with the Inquisition?

What about a "Fast Lane" type pass?

Does that include the free sun screen while you get burned at the stake for heresy?

Alcohol in a Christian park??? What about the poor children?!!

Wine? I meant Diet Coke. Where do I go in the park to have my water turned into Diet Coke?

Ill take where do I go in the park to get Diet Pepsi with caffeine (the answer is Halloween, but they really need to expand that coverage, so few people will take caffine free over caffinated Diet Soda; I mean if you take out the sugar and the caffine then what in the world is the point.)

According to ShieKraFiend, all that is required is an empty cup for that "miracle" to occur.

I... I'm at a loss for words right now. This thread turned amazing, and I wasn't around to witness it.

You don't need to be a witness, Thomas; you just have to believe.
