SEATTLE (AP) -A judge in Seattle says she will rule Monday on motions in the city's lawsuit that seeks to prevent the NBA's SuperSonics from relocating to Oklahoma City.
U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman held a hearing Friday to rule on pretrial motions regarding evidence, arguments and witnesses. Those motions include whether certain witnesses and evidence will be presented at trial.
The city is suing to force the team to play out the two seasons remaining on its KeyArena lease.
Sonics owner Clay Bennett would like to pay off the lease and leave town. The NBA has already approved a move to Oklahoma City.
A trial in the lawsuit is scheduled June 16 in U.S. District Court in Seattle.
