SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A judge has granted the motion for change of venue to Los Angeles in former NBA players' association executive director Billy Hunter's lawsuit against president Derek Fisher and the union.
Hunter filed the suit in Alameda County, but lawyers for Fisher, his publicist, Jamie Wior, and the NBPA argued it should be in Los Angeles, where they both live.
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch agreed Thursday.
Hunter, who was ousted in February, filed the lawsuit in May, seeking unspecified damages for defamation and breach of contract.
The attorneys for the NBPA, Fisher and Wior issued a statement that said: ``We are pleased that the court has transferred the case to Los Angeles, where it should have been filed, and now look forward to a hearing on the pending motions to dismiss the case.''
