NBA Players Move Antitrust Case To Minnesota

Tuesday November 22nd, 2011

NBA players have filed an amended federal lawsuit in Minnesota after the complaint in California was withdrawn on Monday, according to ESPN. The players had filed class-action antitrust lawsuits against the league in both Minnesota and California last Tuesday.

According to ESPN, the players’ lawyer David Boies believes the case will move more quickly in Minnesota than California. The players have been locked out since July 1 and all games through Dec. 15 have been canceled.

Earlier today, the NBA Coaches Association pleaded for the owners and players to come to an agreement.
