8th Circuit to Hear Arguments in NFL/NFL Labor Dispute.

Posted: June 3, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

Oral arguments will begin at 10:00 central time and are expected to take a couple of hours as NFL and the former NFL Players Association try to convince the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals that their position is the correct position regarding the12-week-long lockout of the NFL players.  Former President George W. Bush’s solicitor general, Ted Olson, will make the argument for the players, while his successor, Paul Clement, will argue on behalf of the NFL.

The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has indicated that the Owners may be in the right when they stayed a lower court ruling enjoining the lockout, but you never know, and a more definitive ruling on this issue is expected from the court by the end of the month.
