A letter to a New York judge says Major League Baseball wants an early dismissal of a lawsuit Alex Rodriguez filed against the league and Commissioner Bud Selig.

Judge Lorna Schofield in Manhattan agreed Monday that both sides could file their motions by Nov. 8 in federal court.

A lawyer for Rodriguez said he wrote the letter jointly with MLB lawyers to schedule how the case will proceed. The lawyer - Jordan Siev - said attorneys for the Yankees third baseman will ask the judge to return the case to state court, where Rodriguez originally filed it. He said MLB lawyers who moved the case to federal court will ask that the lawsuit be dismissed.

The lawsuit claims MLB went on a "witch hunt" to remove Rodriguez from baseball.
