Wickline wants lawsuit dismissed or moved to Texas
Joe Wickline last week asked an Oklahoma court to dismiss Oklahoma State's breach-of-contract lawsuit. And if it goes to trial, Wickline says Oklahoma State is too powerful for him to get a fair trial in Oklahoma state court.
Wickline says Travis County, Texas, where he now works for the Longhorns, is a ''more just and proper'' venue. Or he suggests an Oklahoma-based federal court.
Oklahoma State is suing Wickline for nearly $600,000, arguing he took a lateral move to Texas, not a promotion, as specified in his contract.
Texas plays at Oklahoma State on Saturday.
