PETITION DENIED: TWINS, MLB CAN'T SHAKE ANTITRUST CASE IN MN
Published June 8, 1998
The MN Attorney General's office "moved one step closer ... to forcing baseball officials to answer questions in a preliminary antitrust investigation" after the MN state Court of Appeals last week denied a petition by lawyers for Twins Owner Carl Pohlad, Acting MLB Commissioner Bud Selig and prospective Twins buyer Don Beaver, according to Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. The petition asked the Court of Appeals to review a lower-court ruling that ordered them to answer questions and surrender documents to MN Attorney General Hubert Humphrey III. MLB's "next step will be to continue its appeal, taking the case to the state Supreme Court, or to turn over the documents to the attorney general's office." MLB had no comment (STAR TRIBUNE, 6/6).
