On Monday, the 2012 Women's Professional Soccer season. In canceling its campaign, the three-year-old, five-team league (which hopes to resume play in '13) cited the resources that it has diverted to a legal battle with Dan Borislow, who in 2010 purchased the Washington Freedom and moved the club to south Florida as the magicJack, named after his long-distance-dialing invention for computers. The relationship between league and owner quickly soured, and WPS disciplined Borislow repeatedly for failing to meet its standards (such as providing ambulances at games) before kicking his team out of the league last October. Borislow has since filed a lawsuit seeking reinstatement, which appears to be going his way: A judge ruled last month that the league did not follow its own dispute-resolution procedures in handling the issue.
