Players Consolidate Lawsuits in Minnesota
The plaintiffs in Carmelo Anthony et al v. the NBA et al withdrew their antitrust complaint against the league Monday in Northern California’s U.S. District Court and will join up with the other players lawsuit filed last week in Minnesota.
“The point is to expedite this and move it along. … If we had not done this, the courts would have,” players attorney David Boies said.
The initial court date in California was set for March 9, and Boies hopes to have a court date in Minnesota in December.
