San Jose's bid to relocate the Oakland A's could be headed to the Supreme Court.

The federal judge hearing the case ruled San Jose can take its appeal to the next step, which is the Ninth Circuit Court.

One of the attorneys representing the city expects justices with the Circuit Court will refer the case to the highest court in the land.

At issue is whether Major League Baseball is violating anti trust laws in refusing to allow the A's to move to San Jose.

The ruling said San Jose can pursue its case on the grounds that baseball should be subject to the same laws as every other sport.
