Ezekiel Elliott's 6-Game Suspension Back On ... For Now

  • Ezekiel Elliott

In a 2-1 decision, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has vacated the preliminary injunction on Elliott's suspension and remanded the case back to district court with instructions to dismiss the case. Henderson upheld Elliott's suspension, and Elliott's representatives petitioned Judge Amos Mazzant in the Eastern District Court of Texas for an emergency injunction that would lift Elliott's suspension until a decision was reached on the court case.

Elliott had been playing while his case was being appealed.

A federal judge in Texas had issued an injunction that blocked the suspension last month, agreeing with National Football League players' union attorneys who argued that the investigation of the allegations in OH and a subsequent appeal were unfair to Elliott.

The NFL countered that it followed procedures under the league's labor deal and that the union improperly filed a lawsuit before the appeals process was complete. In its ruling, the 5th Circuit agreed with league attorneys who argued that Elliott prematurely sued the league September 1.

James Murdoch Reelected as Sky Chairman
Almost 22% of all shareholders, and more than 48% of independent ones, opposed Murdoch being allowed to continue in the post. It also said executive pay at Sky was too complex and that bosses could receive huge payouts if the Fox deal goes through.


What does this mean for Elliott?

When the union filed its case in defense of Elliott in Texas, the N.F.L. filed a separate motion in the Southern District of NY, where it argued that that court was the appropriate venue for the league and players to settle their disputes.

The NFL appeal was part of an attempt by the NFL to enforce Elliott's suspension this season and confirm NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's authority to issue punishment based on "conduct detrimental" to the league as mandated in Article 46 of the collective bargaining agreement. "So this is not over yet, particularly with the bye week, that Elliott will not serve the suspension".

The league won the "Deflategate" decision in the NY court, leading to New England quarterback Tom Brady serving his four-game suspension a year after it was originally imposed.
