SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Thursday rejected the city of San Jose, California's attempt to win a court order allowing the Oakland A's baseball team to move to Silicon Valley.

In its ruling, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco cited Major League Baseball's exemption to U.S. antitrust laws.
