Re: 9 A.M. Vilma Hearing

I am watching Gabe Feldman's twitter:

Gabe Feldman ‏@SportsLawGuy

More good news for Vilma-judge believes that Vilma has shown irreparable harm. Key prong in getting injunctive relief.

Gabe Feldman ‏@SportsLawGuy

Judge now discussing defamation suit. She is troubled by preemption argument. Ie, that defamation suit is preempted by CBA.

Gabe Feldman ‏@SportsLawGuy

Summing up first 15 mins- Judge suggests NFL process was unfair,punishment was excessive, and commish may not have juris. But, plyrs...

Gabe Feldman ‏@SportsLawGuy

May need to exhaust internal appeal of Burbank ruling. &, judge suggests that cartoffs are bounties. So,mostly good for plyrs, but bag mixed

"NFLPA attorney says Berrigan fully empowered to rule in Vilma's favor"


Really? You are telling the Judge what she is empowered to do? Sit down and shut up.

Kessler: "You are not a potted plant, your honor. You are not powerless."

Re: 9 A.M. Vilma Hearing

Judge stops Kessler, again stresses she may not be able to do anything until hearing on the 30th


My Take:

kessler is trying to make her rule now... Judges do not like their rulings overturned on appeals.. If the Judge questions her authority to rule now because the Burbank hearings are not done, she will NOT rule.

Re: 9 A.M. Vilma Hearing

Kessler: We don't want to set aside Burbank's ruling. We want to set aside Goodell's affirmation. He forced issue by ruling before...Appeals board could rule on whether he had power. Therefore, he drove us to court by not waiting on appeals board and remedies exhausted

Kessler: "You don't have to wait for the appeals panel because Mr. Goodell did not wait for the appeals panel."

Re: 9 A.M. Vilma Hearing

Kessler argues that judge has power to appoint a new arbitrator to decide the case. To send this back to RG would be like "Groundhog Day"


ROFLMAO

Re: 9 A.M. Vilma Hearing

Looks like yet another waste of time in court today for Vilma, I'm all for him fighting this to the end but who know's when that is coming. I could see it now that come the 30th, they will make up some new reason to push it back
