District Court in San Jose as part of a lawsuit filed by the City of San Jose against MLB and Selig on June 18. "MLB denied the Athletics' relocation request on June 17, 2013, one day before this lawsuit was filed," an MLB portion of the filing said. The city of San Jose in its suit accused MLB of conspiring to stop the team's proposal to move to a planned ballpark in downtown San Jose. U.S. District Judge Ronald M. While MLB decided there was not a proposal it could approve last June, it's unclear whether that stance could change in the future. Athletics owner Lew Wolff said in an email "I do not comment on legal proceedings" and "I continue to follow the process that MLB has set forth." However, a closer reading of the document made it clear that Selig was not ruling out a move at some point in the future, but was simply responding to a specific issue on a specific date.
