Judge Again Turns Down NFLPA's Collusion Claim Against The NFL
Published February 22, 2013
The union then argued that the league had not been forthright in getting the NFLPA to agree to that dismissal, so the claim should be allowed. But Doty ruled, “The court concludes that declining to reopen the matter achieves the appropriate balance between bringing litigation to a close and satisfying the equitable principles of Rule 60(b).” Rule 60b refers to the portion of federal law that the union had cited to re-open the case. The NFLPA has already appealed the original Doty decision to the 8th Circuit court of appeals, but had asked that court to stay the case until Doty ruled again. It now would seem likely the union would rescind that stay motion at the appeals court.
