NEW YORK, November 21, 2011 -- The complaint in the lawsuit filed by David Boies on behalf of NBA players has been voluntarily dismissed by Boies' firm.
"We assume that Mr. Boies was not happy with either the reassignment of the case from Oakland to San Francisco or the fact that the new judge scheduled the first conference for March 2012," said Rick Buchanan, NBA Executive Vice President and General Counsel. "This is consistent with Mr. Boies' inappropriate shopping for a forum that he can only hope will be friendlier to his baseless legal claims."
