San Jose is currently appealing a lawsuit against Major League Baseball. When Major League Baseball and the San Francisco Giants blocked the A’s professional baseball team from moving from Oakland to San Jose, the city responded by bringing an antitrust action against the professional baseball organization. However, the trial court followed an old Supreme Court of the United States opinion from 1922, and reaffirmed in 1953 and 1972, that held that major league baseball as a business does not participate in interstate commerce and, thus, is exempt from federal antitrust laws. Although other parts of the case are still being decided at the trial court level, the trial court has given San Jose permission to appeal this particular ruling.
