Potential Trial Date Coming Today

As you should be aware, a very important decision may be made today by Judge Marsha Pechman regarding the court case involving the City of Seattle and Clay Bennett et al. From Eric Williams at the TNT:

Ruth Bowman, a spokesperson for the Seattle City Attorney’s office, said Judge Marsha Pechman has called a scheduling conference to bring the two sides together in the court case between the city and the Sonics for a 10 a.m. meeting Tuesday at the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Seattle. Bowman said Pechman may set a trial date during the meeting.

The Sonics, obviously, are keen to have the court date set earlier, in March, while the city is looking for a post-summer date. By scheduling the date for March, Judge Pechman would enable the Sonics to move to Oklahoma City for the upcoming season, while an October date would cancel that possibility, regardless of her verdict in the case.

If info becomes available, we'll try to post it as quickly as possible. Basically, if you want to see the Sonics play at KeyArena next season, keep your fingers crossed that Pechman has a couple of weddings to go to in March.
