Under a judge’s order released Friday, NCAA president Mark Emmert, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NBA commissioner David Stern, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will be questioned for up to four hours each.

They’ll also have to produce years’ worth of documents regarding the potential impact of sports betting, fantasy sports leagues and even “March Madness” office pools.

The leagues and the NCAA sued in August after Gov. Chris Christie vowed to defy a federal ban on sports wagering. The NCAA says it will relocate six championship events scheduled to be held in the state next year.
