Legal teams for Jonathan Vilma, Roger Goodell file memos concerning subpoenas

Not much here... thought I would post anyway.



The legal teams for New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and the NFL are going back and forth once again concerning subpoenas and depositions in Vilma's defamation lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Both sides filed supplemental memos to Magistrate Judge Daniel Knowles on Monday involving the NFL's motion to stop the discovery phase of Vilma's defamation lawsuit.


Vilma's side is arguing there are no statutes, rules or precedents that require a district court to not enforce subpoenas based on the status of another case in another jurisdiction.
The NFL continued its argument in the memo that Peter Ginsberg, Vilma's lawyer, cannot issue subpoenas to former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, former Saints assistant Mike Cerullo and former lead NFL investigator Joe Hummel, along with deposing Goodell since there's been no ruling yet on the NFL's motion to dismiss the defamation lawsuit entirely.
Meanwhile, the waiting game continues for the four players connected to the Saints alleged bounty programs as the NFL made no decision on possible new punishments as of Tuesday morning. There's been speculation and reports that the league would re-punish the four players this week and possibly as early as Tuesday.
Vilma met with Goodell and other league officials more than two weeks ago in New York, while Saints defensive end Will Smith and former Saints and current defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove sat down with Goodell and officials exactly two weeks ago.
Former Saints and current Browns linebacker Scott Fujita met with the league last Friday after his first meeting was postponed.
A three-person panel vacated the suspensions of Vilma (whole 2012 season), Hargrove (eight games), Smith (four) and Fujita (three) leading up two days before most of Week 1's games began.

If the ruling to uphold these subpoenas and discovery process comes out it may just push the situation some from the stalemate it is currently at.

Der Kommisar holding off on reissuing player penalties
Judge Berrigan holding any further rulings in the defamation suit

The issue about reissuing penalties is there has been information no reissued penalty will take effect until an appeal of the new penalties takes place

Starting the whole process that started much of this over again.

What a Freaking MESS...

Der Kommisar doesn't want the discovery process to go public with what he doesn't have. He may find himself being very lenient in order to make this go away.lol
