Requested Continuance by the NFL Denied.

Posted: May 24, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

The National Football League had requested from the court more time to file its response to the pending antitrust lawsuit claims filed by the former NFL Players’ Association. The reason for such request is that the lawsuit filed by current players was amended to include additional counts from retirees led by former Minnesota Viking and Hall of Famer, Carl Eller.

That request was denied by U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham who ruled that the NFL must answer by June 6.  “The court acknowledges that the injunction of the lockout is on appeal, but there are other significant factors weighing strongly in favor of moving forward with the rest of the case,” Graham wrote. “Regardless of the ruling on appeal, this case is likely to proceed” on other grounds.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments by both the NFL and the former NFL Players’ Association on June 3, 2011, as to legality of the current lockout.
