MLS PLAYERS FILE SUIT IN U.S. DISTRICT COURT
Published February 14, 1997
The MLS Players Association filed an anti-trust suit against the league under the names of ten players, one from each team, yesterday in U.S. District Court in Boston, according to Dan Giesin in the S.F. CHRONICLE. The suit challenges what the players "charge are illegal restrictions imposed by the league," including a salary cap and MLS' single-entity system, which the suit calls a "sham, designed to suppress players salaries" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 2/14).
