NBA Players Union Gets Hunter Lawsuit Moved to L.A. Court

The National Basketball Players Association won its bid for a lawsuit filed by ousted Executive Director Billy Hunter to be moved to state court in Los Angeles, the union said.

“We are pleased that the court has transferred the case to Los Angeles, where it should have been filed, and now look forward to a hearing on the pending motions to dismiss the case,” Christina Sarchio, an attorney for the union, and Andrew Kassof, the lawyer for association President Derek Fisher and other defendants, said in a statement. Court records confirming the ruling weren’t immediately available.
