TUCSON, Ariz. -- In executive session Wednesday, council members addressed the city's legal battle with the Tucson Toros.

The council unanimously voted to authorize the city attorney to negotiate a settlement with the Toros.

There is a pending lawsuit between the city and the Toros over its lease to Hi Corbett field.

If the two parties settle, it would clear the way for the University of Arizona to move into Hi Corbett.

If the Toros can't come to an agreement to play ball at Hi Corbett, team officials say they'd be forced to lay people off.
