Minnesota Timberwolves Players File Suit

The NBA players are back to the court. The District Court, that is.

The NBAPA filed a class-action antitrust lawsuit against the NBA and its 30 teams in the same venue where the NFL and its players fought last spring and summer.

The same Minneapolis law firm that helped represent the NFL players filed a lawsuit for all NBA players. Wolves players are specifically named as plaintiffs, Anthony Tolliver and Derrick Williams, as well as Caron Butler and Ben Gordon.

The Minneapolis venue is a popular choice because the NFLPA has had success there, as well as its ability to schedule hearings more quickly than other district courts.
