Glendale Weights In

Information from Glendale's court filing makes it clear that the party with the most to close in this equation is not goign to go quietly.
"The city believes that it has the right under applicable law to prohibit any relocation of the Phoenix Coyotes...The city believes and therefore asserts that its right to enforce the Non-Relocation Covenant under applicable law shall survive these Chapter 11 cases, including any sale of the (team)."

There's plenty more legalese in the documents that the Moyes team must respond to tomorrow but Glendale's filing makes it clear that the City will take every legal avenue available to block the sale and the termination of the arena lease. And that means lots of long protracted litigation that could extend on for seevral years.
