Happy Saturday, New York Giants fans! And welcome to the holiday weekend! Before you head off to your second round of BBQs and celebrations, why not enjoying the following morning headlines over your coffee?

A sports memorabilia dealer accusing the New York Giants of covering up the distribution of fake collectibles is urging a New Jersey federal court to reject jurisdiction of the suit, arguing Thursday that a magistrate judge's recommendation represents a flawed reading of patent infringement claims into the dispute.
