A federal judge moved the date for a trial over the ownership of the Saints and Pelicans. 

Judge Jane Triche Milazzo set the trial for February 6, 2017. 

Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson is suing to remove non-voting shares of the teams' stock from trust funds he set up for his daughter Renee Benson and grandchildren Ryan and Rita LeBlanc. 

The judge ordered the case to go to trial after negotiations between Benson's attorneys and the trustees broke down.
