In a somewhat surprising move, Judge Nelson has ruled to not allow a stay in the ruling to end the lockout. She opted not to grant the stay as the league "has not met its burden for a stay pending appeal, expedited or otherwise." This means the league has to open their doors to the players, meaning free agency, trades, cuts and other issues can begin to occur once the league officially ends the lockout.
Stay not granted by judge, lockout over?
