 SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California city is suing Major League Baseball over the Oakland Athletics' pursuit of a new ballpark in the city.
In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday in federal court, the City of San Jose says MLB has been dragging its feet in having owners vote on the A's proposed move to San Jose.
The lawsuit says MLB has controlled the location of teams under the ``guise'' of an exemption to federal antitrust law. The lawsuit is disputing that exemption.
The San Francisco Giants have objected to the A's potential move on grounds they relied on territorial rights to the San Jose-area market when the Giants built their ballpark.
MLB Commissioner Bud Selig appointed a committee to study the matter.
He has previously said additional litigation over the A's move would be unproductive.
