by November 29, 2011

With a tentative labor agreement in place between the NBA and its players, the court system has been asked to hold off on taking any action regarding the players’ antitrust lawsuit against the League (until December 9th, by which time they plan to inform the judge on whether a settlement has been reached.) From the AP: “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 bargaining agreement. 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.”
