SEATTLE (AP) -Former Seattle SuperSonics owner Howard Schultz's court bid to regain control of the team will have to wait until after next season.
Federal Judge Marsha Pechman has set a June 15 trial date for Schultz's lawsuit, which seeks to overturn his 2006 sale of the team to Clay Bennett.
Pechman also heard the city of Seattle's lawsuit against Bennett, which resulted in a settlement allowing the team to relocate to Oklahoma City for the upcoming season.
Schultz claims Bennett failed to follow through on his promise to make a good-faith effort get a new arena built to keep the team in Seattle.
