JURISPRUDENCE

Los Angeles -- A U.S. District judge ruled that NBA Commissioner David Stern will resolve the dispute between the Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks over the Marques Johnson trade, despite contentions by Los Angeles that Stern is biased. The Clippers earlier this year asked Stern to overturn the Sept. 29, 1984 trade that sent Johnson from Milwaukee to Los Angeles, contending they didn't know until after the trade that he had been admitted to a drug rehabilitation clinic.
