NBA players ask judge to stay court proceedings
A group of NBA players that has filed an antitrust lawsuit
against the league is asking a Minnesota judge to hold off on any
court proceedings while the two sides work on a new collective
The players sent a letter to U.S. District Judge Patrick Schiltz
on Monday. The letter informs the judge that the two sides have
reached a tentative agreement to resolve their labor dispute,
including lawsuits filed in Minnesota by the players and in New
York by the owners.
The letter states that both sides are working to ”reduce the
tentative resolution to a comprehensive, written agreement.” The
players ask Schiltz to stay all scheduled court proceedings until
Dec. 9, by which time they plan to inform him on whether a
settlement has been finished.
