Court Rules In Favor of Angels

The city of Anaheim has suffered another legal setback in its continuing battle with the (Los Angeles) Angels. A California appellate court affirmed a lower court decision that will allow the team to use the Los Angeles name for the remainder of the season. The team was seeking a temporary injunction against the use of Los Angeles until the matter could go to trial. The court did not issue an opinion, but to issue the injunction it would have had to find that irreparable injury would be done to the city in its absence. The city must now decide whether to continue pursuing the case. (McKibben, "Anaheim loses its battle for now," LA Times, 06/28/05).
