NFL Asks For Expedited Appeal Over Tom Brady Ruling

According to various sources including a Reuters report, yesterday the NFL (National Football League) filed a motion in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit for an expedited legal proceeding.  This now means that the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could be thrust back into a courtroom in the middle of the playoffs.

The NFL is hoping that an as yet unnamed three-judge panel on the Second Circuit will overturn the United States District Judge Richard Berman’s September 3 decision in Tom Brady’s favor. The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) agreed to the NFL’s motion, thereby raising the chances that an expedited proceeding will be approved.

NFL.com confirms that the NFL specifically filed a motion yesterday to present opening briefs late next month (October). The league also stated that they would like a quick resolution well prior to the 2016 regular season begins. No appeal hearing date has been set yet.

The specifics of the NFL’s current plan includes presenting opening briefs due on or before October 26.This would be followed by a response from the NFLPA on or before December 7 and the league’s response on or before December 21. Oral arguments would follow in January.

Brady was given a four-game suspension in May following an NFL investigation in which it was determined that Brady knew team staff members actually deflated footballs before the AFC Championship game between the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots this January.

Brady next appealed the suspension. It was upheld by the commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell on July 28. The NFLPA and Brady continued to challenge the suspension and took it to federal court.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman overturned the four-game suspension on September 3. This freed Brady to start this year’s season on schedule.

The judge’s ruling caused the NFL to immediately file an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals following the decision. Brady and his fellow Patriots have begun the season 2-0
