Lawsuit against B-Mets could be close to settled

A lawsuit filed against the Binghamton Mets by Florida based ownership group Main Street Baseball could be close to a settlement. Attorneys for the B-Mets at Coughlin & Gerhart issued a letter to federal court in Utica asking for a settlement conference. The letter states that the two parties believe that outstanding issues could be resolved or significantly narrowed with a court mediation session.

Main Street Baseball is suing the Binghamton Mets ownership group after negotiations began to sell the team to Main Street, which then intended to relocate the B-Mets to Wilmington, DE. B-Mets President Mike Urda ceased negotiations when the no shopping period outlined in the Letter of Intent expired, but David Heller, Main Street Baseball CEO, says that in doing so, Urda reneged on a deal already in place. Urda has denied this and said that the letter of intent was to negotiate a sale, not provide for the sale.

No date has been set for the settlement conference.

The B-Mets return home Thursday as they host the New Hampshire Fishercats at 6:35.
