Dispute Between German Hockey Federation, Rebel Second-Division Clubs Goes To Court
The "dispute between the German Hockey Federation (DEB) and its rebellious second-division clubs will go to court," according to the SID. DEB President Uwe Harnos "let the club's deadline to sign a declaration to cease and desist pass on Tuesday." Lawyer Jürgen Scholz, who represents the nine rebellious second-division clubs, said, "Now we have to involve the courts. It is about time that everything will be legally resolved. It's two colliding legal concepts." A court date at the regional court in Munich "has not been set yet." Scholz: "We obviously hope that everything moves as fast as possible, but we can't influence the process" (SID, 6/19).
