SULLIVAN'S LAWSUIT AGAINST NFL IS BACK IN COURT
Published May 9, 1995
The NFL yesterday asked a federal judge to grant a motion sparing it from a second trial on former Patriots owner William Sullivan's antitrust lawsuit against the league. The case is back in court after Sullivan's $51M award by a U.S. District Court jury was thrown out by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. League lawyers are arguing that the league and its teams could not be accused of conspiring to violate antitrust law because the NFL should be considered a single entity instead of a group of teams with separate goals (AP/ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/9).
