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

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

A federal appeals court cleared the way for the NFL to impose a six-game suspension on Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott over domestic violence allegations on Thursday, siding with the league in the latest high-profile fight over its ability to punish players for off-field behavior. At the time the NFLPA filed the complaint, it was possible the arbitrator could have issued a final decision that was favorable to Elliott. Elliott can not show it was futile to wait for a final decision simply because he believed the arbitrator would issue an unfavorable ruling. In a letter sent to Elliott informing him of suspension in August, the National Football League stated it believed he used physical force against Thompson three times over a span of five days in July 2016. Henderson ruled against Elliott the same day Mazzant heard arguments over the injunction.

The league has been unwilling to live with that decision.

The circuit court's ruling does not mean Elliott's fight is over.

Elliott's lawyers point to appeals hearing testimony from Roberts that notes her lack of support for a suspension because she questioned Thompson's credibility.

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. This recommendation was not passed on to Goodell and, according to the suit, hindered the commissioner's ability to do his job.

The case will essentially start all over again, but will now move from Texas to NY, where Elliott has 10 days to refile his motion to fight the suspension. The league won its Deflate-gate case against Tom Brady in that court. Elliott will have to get another injunction in NY in order to keep playing this season.
