NFL Agrees To Unseal Partial Records In Media Fees Case
The NFL yesterday agreed to unseal parts of some documents in the closely watched media fees case brought by the NFLPA, but not as much as the union has requested. The NFLPA has asked to unseal many of the records, which include the decision, media contracts, deposition transcripts and numerous league-wide debt contracts. The latter are believed to be included because of covenants in league-wide financings that require the media fees as collateral.
The NFL asked U.S. District Court Judge David Doty of the district of Minnesota to declare the union's unsealing request moot because the league is agreeing to unseal some records, with the confidential information redacted.
