Shortly into the testimony from Danny Barth, Sonics interim president and CEO, Judge Marsha Pechman interrupted the proceedings for lunch.
Before the break, Seattle attorney Jeffrey Johnson introduced Exhibit 59, which provided details about the team's 622 hours of community service. The report mentions that former Sonics Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis spent $5,000 to buy jerseys for the Cleveland High boys basketball team and that Chris Wilcox gave away 540 turkey to needy families.
Johnson submitted letters from the Boys and Girls Club and the Ronald McDonald House to Sonics Director of Community Relations Rick DuPree that thanked the team for the contributions.
The trial will resume at 1:30 p.m.
