The City of Oakland has responded to the looming relocation of one of the most litigious franchises in sports with drum roll, litigation. And now the Raiders and the NFL are trying to get the antitrust lawsuit filed over the coming move to Las Vegas thrown out of court.It’s a very common maneuver whenever any lawsuit presents an aggressive and creative legal theory.the case on the merits, the defendants try to knock it out with a device known as the motion to dismiss, for failure to state a claim. Basically, the argument goes this like this: “Even if everything they’re saying is true (and we reserve the right to later argue that it’s not), they can’t win.”Via the Bay Area News Group , the Raiders and the NFL filed their motion to dismiss on March 1, calling the lawsuit a “striking perversion of antitrust law” and claiming that Oakland is trying to “turn antitrust on its head.”“The Raiders want to move to Las Vegas,” the team and the league wrote in the memorandum of law supporting the motion to dismiss. “Las Vegas wants to host the Raiders. The Las Vegas opportunity is more attractive, so much so that the Raiders are willing to pay a relocation fee over $300 million in order to move.”Oakland’s antitrust argument has been confusing from the get-go. If anything, an antitrust violation would arise if the league tried to keep the Raiders — like all teams an losing the Raiders.The Raiders and the NFL argue that the relocation policy doesn’t rise to the level of a “contract” or any other binding obligation to the cities where teams currently play. “The policy provides that clubs will attempt to develop ‘suitable stadium f the matter before the presiding judge decides, apparently by June, whether to throw the case out or let it proceed. If it moves forward, a trial tentatively has been scheduled to begin in August 2021.And so ends today’s session of the PFT Cracker Jack Box School Of Legal Miseducation. A Michigan State University trustee has been charged with assault following a dispute over a referee’s calls during a girls’ basketball tournament.
, the Lansing State Journal reported .

Lyons denies the allegations, said Brian Lennon, his attorney. Lennon said he hopes the case will be dismissed.

”We have identified numerous witnesses who refute the alleged victim’s account of the events,” Lennon said.

The referee told police that he had to make a couple calls that caused one team to lose and then issued two technical fouls following a verbal dispute. The referee said that an unidentified coach confronted him after the game and twice pushed him in the chest with his hands.

Lyons either pushed the referee or was attempting to illustrate what one of his players was doing during the game, one witness told Michigan State Police. Another witness told police she was standing near the two men and didn’t see Lyons push the referee.

A court hearing is set for Feb. 12 in Jackson County District Court.

Lyons played football from 1988 to 1992 at Michigan State. He spent seven years in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Atlanta Falcons. Lyons has been a university trustee since 2011 and said doesn’t plan to seek another term when his current term expires at the end of the year.

Lyons last month was the only member of the Michigan State trustees to publicly call for university President Lou Anna Simon to step down before she resigned over the handling of the *** assault scandal involving former university sports doctor Larry Nassar.
