Goodell’s motion for staying discovery cites two reasons. First, the commissioner has sought to have the suit dismissed, and argues that under federal law, discovery cannot proceed until that motion is ruled on by the court. Secondly, Judge Helen Berrigan had suspended the lawsuit until the outcome of the CBA appeals panel process. That panel has essentially stayed Goodell’s suspensions of Vilma and three other players for their alleged role in placing bounties on opposing players until the commissioner clarifies the reasoning behind his decision. Goodell can than re-issue suspensions, if he so chooses.
