Arbiters to Hear Claims Vs. Loria

The action brought by the Montreal Expos' former limited partners against former owner Jeffrey Loria goes to arbitration on Monday in New York. A three-arbitrator panel will hear the claims. The hearings are expected to run through June 9.

Note to those interested in this case: arbitration proceedings are non-public, and at the end of the process the arbitrators usually issue very brief rulings with little or no explanation. Once the arbitration is completed, discovery on the related claims against Bud Selig and Bob DuPuy can proceed -- but as a practical matter, if plaintiffs can't persuade the arbitrators that Jeffrey Loria violated their rights, they have little chance of winning their lawsuit against the MLB defendants.
