The plaintiffs have tried for most of the year to get Goodell for a deposition, and had been originally turned down by the judge until her order yesterday. But the judge’s order could be somewhat bittersweet. It comes one day after Lynn denied class certification, meaning any case would have to go forward with just the named plaintiffs. Lack of class certification would make the case much less worthwhile for the plaintiff firms to proceed with, said John Goldman, a sports attorney with Herrick Feinstein.
Michael Avenatti, the lead counsel for the ticketholders, replied he “absolutely” plans to continue with the case. Lynn ruled Goodell’s deposition will occur no later than Aug. 5.
