Rose’s Lawyers Go for Another Victory in Court
Pete Rose’s lawyers will file papers in Columbus, Ohio with a federal judge who is deciding which court system will try Cincinnati Reds’ manager case against Major League baseball.
Rose’s lawyers have until noon to file their brief with U.S. District Judge John D. Holschuh, who will decide whether Rose’s lawsuit against Commissioner Bart Giamatti should be decided in a state or a federal court.
Holschuh’s office said the judge will not decide by today.
Rose’s lawyers want the case returned to Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Norbert A. Nadel, who granted Rose a temporary restraining order last month that stopped Giamatti from holding a hearing with Rose on allegations and evidence that the manager bet on his own team.
Nadel also barred Giamatti and the Reds from suspending Rose or taking any other action against him.
