NFL, Charity Reach Settlement Over Enforcement Of Gambling Policy
The NFL has "reached a settlement with a youth charity that sued the league for fraud over how the league enforced its gambling policy" at a casino near Las Vegas in '15. The agreement to close the federal court case "comes about a week after the charity asked for a federal judge to compel" NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to "testify under oath about the league's gambling policy." The charity, Strikes for Kids, sued the league last year, saying it was "misled by the league and lost revenue after being forced to relocate a bowling event for kids." More than 100 boys and girls were invited to the event at a bowling alley that was to "feature more than 25 NFL players as the star attraction" (USA TODAY, 6/16).
