San Jose Takes Case Against MLB To Ninth Circuit Appeals Court

The city of San Jose this week "resumes its high-stakes legal game against MLB," pressing its claim in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday that the league's "refusal to allow the A's to move south violates federal antitrust laws." The court will hear arguments in a case that "challenges baseball's nearly century-old exemption from antitrust laws." Many legal experts say that a ruling against the league, while unlikely, "could force a settlement in favor of an A's move to the valley" (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 8/11).
