Hoop Dreams

I’m always searching for interesting judicial opinions.  I recently discovered Judge Ricardo Martinez’s opinion in City of Seattle v. Professional Basketball Club, LLC, No. C07-1620RSM, 2007 WL 3217556 (W.D. Wash Oct. 2, 2007), a suit between Seattle and an investment group, PBC, that purchased the Seattle SuperSonics (and moved them to Oklahoma City).  PBC argued that the City’s suit was subject to an arbitration provision in the agreement between the parties.  Judge Martinez denied PBC’s motion to stay the litigation, finding that its argument was “as errant as a typical Shaquille O’Neal free throw.”

For the uninitiated—O’Neal made less than 53% of the free-throws he took in his professional basketball career. 

Happy basketball season!
