(wium) - The panelists discuss a lawsuit filed by an NBA referee, who is suing The Associated Press and one of its sports writers over a Twitter message.

Writer Jon Krawczynski tweeted that referee William Spooner made a bad call against the Houston Rockets in order to make for an earlier bad call against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Spooner claimed his professional reputation has been hurt.

A representative from the NBA said the league investigated the tweet, found it to be without substance, and considered the matter closed.

The panelists feel Spooner should not have much of a case. They say it's not uncommon for sportscasters make such comments during games and a Twitter message should be treated the same way.
