CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A judge has set a June 17 trial to determine whether a New Jersey auction house can sell memorabilia from Kobe Bryant's high school days and early pro career.
Bryant says his mother, Pamela Bryant, does not own the stuff and cannot sell it.
A judge on Tuesday set the trial date. The lawyers in the case also are due in court Friday to see if they can work it out without a trial.
While the rift seems to be between player and parents, the litigation is between Kobe Bryant and Berlin, N.J.-based Goldin Auctions.
The auctioneer wants to sell mementos including practice gear and jerseys, varsity letters and awards from his days at Pennsylvania's Lower Merion High School. The sale also would include items from his early days in the NBA.
