8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Manchester believes limiting where and when group can protest is constitutional
8th Circuit panel throws out Minnesota federal judge’s decision to lift stalemate.
Billy Hunter said last week he felt owners believe the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis will uphold employers’ rights to impose lockouts.
One person says various issues were discussed, but “to characterize it as progress might not be accurate.”
One day after canceling the rookie symposium scheduled for June 26 in Canton, Ohio, Goodell reiterated the league’s intent to play a full schedule this season.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the lockout can remain intact until a full appeal is heard on whether it is legal.
The appeals court in St. Louis has a hearing in the case set for June 3.
Judge David Doty took the request under advisement after a two-hour hearing that included arguments from attorneys for the league and the players.
A three-judge panel in St. Louis voted 2-1 to issue a temporary stay of Nelson’s order on April 29, a decision that still stands.
Though the players have argued there is no guarantee that can be wrapped up in time for the regular season, the NFL said the process is more a matter of weeks than months.
