PETITION DENIED: TWINS, MLB CAN'T SHAKE ANTITRUST CASE IN MN

          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).
