On February 9 2006 — Deliberating for a little more than four hours, a jury rules the Angels did not breach a contract with the city of Anaheim when the ball club changed its name. Thirteen months ago, the team known as the Anaheim Angels became the “Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim”, prompting the city where it plays to file a law suit claiming the change in name amounted to at least $100 million in lost revenue.
