Local Basketball Team Reinstated

January 31, 2018

Our firm successfully established the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court for the District of Puerto Rico over a diversity action under Illinois law filed on behalf of a Puerto Rico basketball team seeking to enjoin its expulsion from the 2010 tournament of a Chicago-based league. Afterwards, the court issued a temporary restraining order in favor of client, ordering the league to immediately reinstate the Puerto Rico team, to reschedule the home game that the team had not been able to host, and to allow the team to participate in the tournament’s postseason. The parties later entered into a settlement agreement that converted the terms of the order in favor of the team in a permanent injunction against the league.
