TWINS MUST ANSWER TO ATTORNEY GENERAL ABOUT LAST SIX YEARS
Published May 12, 1998
Ramsey County, MN, District Judge Margaret Marrinan ruled that MN's Attorney General "may ask questions and seek documents" from the Twins and MLB about events dating to '92 to determine if the team and league execs violated antitrust laws, according to Jay Weiner of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Twins attorney Roger Magnuson was "unavailable for comment," but said last Friday that the team "would appeal" any initial ruling "allowing an investigation of any kind." The Twins "also sought an expedited appeal" to the MN Supreme Court, which was denied by Marrinan. The Twins and MLB "are expected" to take the case to the MN Court of Appeals. Marrinan selected '92 as the cutoff date for the investigation "because that year a similar case was heard in Florida" (Jay Weiner, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 5/12).
