Attorneys for Jonathan Vilma filed a statement in the Eastern District Court of Louisiana Wednesday, which said that if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell does not overturn his yearlong suspension of Vilma, they will seek an injunction against his punishment.

The statement, written to Judge Helen Berrigan, said that since Vilma's attorneys believe the issue is related to his defamation suit, filed against Goodell on May 17, the injunction should also be handled in Berrigan's court.

"We are writing to inform the court that, in the event Mr. Goodell does not rescind his suspension, Mr. Vilma intends to seek injunctive relief in a separate action filed in this District, which we believe would be considered a related case and assigned to your Honor pursuant to LR 3.1 and 3.1.1," his attorneys said in the statement.

Injunction on what grounds?
The judge will likely look at this as an item that should be covered under the Employee Non-Descrimination Act. Since it is actually an issue between an employee and his employer. Unless he can prove discrimination based on race, gender, or disability, i do not see a judge taking action on this.
Employment Non-Discrimination Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Louisiana is an "at will" employment state.
Employment at Will

In Louisiana "at will" for anyone bound by a CBA that person has to follow the CBA.

Since Vilma was suspended BEFORE the Slander/Defamation suit was filed, I do not see how a Judge could correlate the two. If the Suit was filed first then Vilma was suspended then he can probably marry the two issues.
