Appellate Court To Rule On Stay Of Lockout Today Or Tomorrow
Published May 4, 2011
The order yesterday disclosed the same three judges hearing the stay motion will hear the appeal by the NFL. The judges are Kermit Bye, Steven Colloton, and Duane Benton. Bye was appointed by President Clinton and voted against the temporary stay, while Benton and Colloton were appointed by the recent President Bush. If the stay is denied, the league can appeal that decision to the full 11-member 8th Circuit. That would take a few weeks and during that time the lockout would be lifted. The league’s first brief is due Monday, and the players response May 20. The league’s response to that is due May 26.
