BASEBALL'S COURT DATE POSTPONED AGAIN
Published June 15, 1995
During a telephone conference call with Administrative Law Judge Edwin Bennett yesterday, MLB players and owners postponed the trial on alleged unfair labor practices by the owners for the third time -- until July 24. Some owners claim that the additional delay may give the sides time to negotiate a new deal, but MLB owners "have shown no indication they are ready to resume negotiations." In a related move, the NLRB denied the owners' motion for a partial summary judgement to dismiss the part of the complaint alleging that their attempt to impose a salary cap violated federal law (AP/Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/15).
