first_imgSANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) – The Angels did not breach a contract with the city of Anaheim when the baseball team changed its name to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, a jury ruled Thursday. Jurors deliberated about five hours before reaching their decision. The jury also found the team did not violate a state law requiring good faith and fair dealing. The city sued the Angels last January for breach of contract, shortly after team owner Arte Moreno changed the name from the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The city claimed the change cost it at least $100 million in lost tourism, publicity and so-called “impressions” – buzz the city gets each time its name appears in the national media in conjunction with a Major League Baseball team.
