Chops Are Here To Stay! --------Kind of

The never ending Chops saga took a positive turn today. Judge Robert Hutchison ordered the owners of the Iowa Chops of the American Hockey League not to relocate the franchise from Des Moines. The injunction is temporary until either the dispute between the County and the Schlegels is resolved or a permanent injunction is in place.
The only way I see to resolve the dispute is to force the Schlegels to sell the franchise. I am not sure if a judge can do that or not, but the league can. From what I have heard, the AHL wants to keep a team in Des Moines and has no further desire to deal with the Schlegels' shenanigans.
Hopefully the issue will be resolved in time to get the team rolling for this season...
