Hunter: Courts May Mediate Settlement

Union executive director Billy Hunter said Tuesday he expected that a Minnesota magistrate judge would mediate the players’ lawsuit against the NBA, as the court did in the NFL’s labor dispute.
Hunter specifically mentioned U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, the court-appointed mediator in the NFL talks. Boylan is not the magistrate assigned to the NBA antitrust suit, although the district judge has the discretion to appoint a different magistrate to mediate.
“What may very well be is the judge there directs the magistrate, as they did in the NFLPA case, to host a settlement conference, and that could possibly occur as early as next week,” Hunter said.
