Sonics ordered to give up e-mails

Posted: Updated:


A Federal judge has given the Seattle Sonic's ownership 14 days to turn over several e-mails as part of its Key Arena lease dispute.

The Sonics said they have already turned over more than 150,000 e-mails sent between owners Clay Bennett and Aubrey McClendon.

But the judge says more are needed because they could be relevant to the case.

The team's lawyers said that digging up the e-mails of the other six board members would be too much work and would only turn up redundant information.

The City of Seattle is suing the Sonics to keep them from breaking their lease with Key Arena.

A trial date is set for June.
