U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman set a few dates in Howard Schultz's lawsuit against the Sonics ownership group.
The first two dates, June 16 and June 23, pertain to a Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
On June 23, Pechman requires attorneys to meet with her in person or via teleconference and present a Joint Status Report and Discovery Plan, which will be used to determine a schedule for the case.
The attorneys must provide a statement about the nature and complexity of the case.
Other questions that must be answered include whether attorneys want the case to be decided by mediation or arbitration, whether they want a jury trial, the date the case will be ready for trial, the number of trial days required and the length of discovery.
The timing of the dates are interesting because the city of Seattle's case against the Sonics owners begins June 16 and is scheduled to end June 26.
