Lawsuit To Keep Crew SC In Columbus Goes To Court

Sep 5, 2018


The lawsuit to keep the Columbus Crew SC from moving to Texas went to court yesterday. 

Attorneys for Major League Soccer and the City of Columbus argued over the legality of the 1996 Ohio law  preventing professional sports franchises from relocating.  MLS says the law is vague and unconstitutional because it blocks interstate commerce. The city says it protects taxpayers who fund sports facilities. The judge has yet to render a decision.
