A little-known subplot of the Dallas Mavericks rise to the top is that Ross Perot Jr. – a minority partner in the club –  is suing team owner Mark Cuban.Perot sold the team to Cuban in 2000 (while keeping a 5% stake), but recently claimed that current ownership has mismanaged the franchise and failed to maximise profits for the shareholders (i.e., Ross Perot Jr.)

Perot called Cuban “careless and reckless” and asked a judge to seize the team from him and place it in receivership.

Well, earlier today, Cuban’s lawyers submitted a brief asking for a summary judgment in his favour. We have to admit, the evidence is pretty persuasive.

Check it out. (Legal documents via the Dallas Observer via Deadspin/TMZ)
