Well, here's one of interest, hot off the press so to speak, not only for those in Minnesota, but anywhere, especially for those who follow the NBA or perhaps their favorite NBA team, and take part in armchair officiating from time to time: William H. Spooner v. The Associated Press, Inc. and John Krawczynski (filed in Minnesota federal district court yesterday on March 14, 2011).
