The battle over the Phoenix Coyotes moved from the ice to the courthouse today as attorneys argued over whether the city of Glendale illegally approved a new lease for the team.

The Goldwater Institute is seeking a preliminary injunction on the deal that could keep the Coyotes in Glendale for the next 20 years and the judge has already issued a partial ruling. "The judge already decided voters can refer the ordinance to the ballot," said Goldwater attorney Carrie Ann Sitren.

The Goldwater Institute is already claiming a partial victory. The judge requested part of the language in Glendale's lease agreement with Greg Jamison, the likely Phoenix Coyotes buyer, be changed.
