NFL players' lawsuit hearing set
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A request by NFL players to keep the league and its teams from locking them out will be heard by a federal judge on April 6 -- the first time the two sides will be in a courtroom since the labor pact fell apart.
U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson scheduled the hearing. The players filed their request last week, hours before the lockout took effect Saturday, along with an antitrust lawsuit with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake if it goes forward.
