DALLAS (AP) - A bankruptcy judge has ordered Major League
Baseball to turn over certain documents to some of the Texas
Rangers' angry creditors trying to block the team's sale.
But U.S Bankruptcy Judge Stacey Jernigan on Monday also ordered
creditors to give documents to the team and baseball commissioner.
Each side accused the other of withholding documents related to
the team's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing last month.
The team wants to pay creditors $75 million and sell the club to
a group led by Pittsburgh attorney Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan,
the Hall of Fame pitcher and team president.
Creditors say the filing was made in bad faith, which would be a
bankruptcy code violation.
But a Major League Baseball attorney denies that claim.
