Court Rules in Favor of National Football League in Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

Court Rules in Favor of National Football League in Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

According to ESPN, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans on Thursday granted the league's emergency request to set aside the injunction and ordered the district court in Texas to dismiss Elliott's case.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. The NFL filed in that federal court after Elliott's NFL appeal was denied by arbitrator Harold Henderson last month.

Elliott, whose struggles on the field have contributed to Dallas's rocky 2-3 start to the season, received the suspension, which is the baseline punishment for a first-time domestic violence offender, after a yearlong investigation into allegations made against Elliott in July 2016.

Elliott declined to comment on the pending case after Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers.

A federal judge in Texas had issued an injunction that blocked the suspension last month, agreeing with NFL players' union attorneys who argued that the investigation of the allegations in OH and a subsequent appeal were unfair to Elliott, one of the league's standout running backs.

What does this mean for Elliott?

But due to the collective bargaining agreement, the National Football League believes it doesn't need a conviction to punish a player. The NFLPA is expected to file a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY, according to sports and gaming attorney Daniel Wallach. That includes whether Henderson and the league acted fairly when they didn't require NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell or Elliott's accuser, Tiffany Thompson, to testify at Elliott's appeal hearing.

The Manhattan court will be charged with making the same decision already made by Mazzant - whether the league's disciplinary process was "fundamentally unfair" to Elliott.

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.
