SULLIVAN'S LAWSUIT AGAINST NFL IS BACK IN COURT

     The NFL yesterday asked a federal judge to grant a motion
sparing it from a second trial on former Patriots owner William
Sullivan's antitrust lawsuit against the league.  The case is
back in court after Sullivan's $51M award by a U.S. District
Court jury was thrown out by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals.  League lawyers are arguing that the league and its
teams could not be accused of conspiring to violate antitrust law
because the NFL should be considered a single entity instead of a
group of teams with separate goals (AP/ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
5/9).
