COURT REPORT: In San Jose, Howard Mintz noted the city's antitrust case against MLB over the "long-stalled plan" to move the A's is now "headed to a federal appeals court -- but delay on a final outcome will continue to be the name of the game." U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Whyte indicated that San Jose can "immediately appeal an earlier order dismissing the city's key federal antitrust arguments ... a move that elevates the legal stakes in a case that challenges MLB's cherished antitrust exemption." Whyte plans a "final decision later, but it came over the objections of MLB lawyers." At the same time, Whyte intends to "abandon his oversight of remaining legal claims made under state law, which argue that MLB has interfered with San Jose's interests by refusing to act for four years on the A's bid to move to Silicon Valley and the city's option agreement with the team to buy land for a ballpark" (MERCURYNEWS.com, 12/13).
