NFL wants to enforce immediately. Zeke and lawyers are going to re-file. And everyone picks up Morris for no reason.

His lawyers still can refile in Dallas or fight it in New York ... He has a better than 50/50 chance to win in NY.

Rapoport ...

Elliott cannot be at the team facility, starting now. It ends Nov. 23.

Two years ago, Brady secured an injunction from the federal court in New York while the lawsuit filed by the NFL, ultimately won the Brady case in the appeals court that has jurisdiction over the New York federal courts, and the league believes that the ruling from the Brady case is sufficiently strong to keep Elliott from securing an injunction, forcing him to commence his six-game suspension immediately.

NFLPA will be filing a petition for rehearing with the Fifth Circuit in the Elliott case

The bad news for Elliott is that the Fifth Circuit isn't exactly known for granting en banc rehearings.

The court is only supposed to agree to en banc rehearing if it involves a case of "exceptional public importance," and it's not clear if the suspension of an NFL running back would qualify under that description.


(5th Circuit granted 6 en banc rehearings out of 200 petitions last year.)

And now Elliott has won . . . for now. The temporary restraining order is stayed for 14 days or until further proceedings.

The NFL has the right to seek appeal, and the league could explore and aggressively pursue an appeal to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

Attorney Jeffrey Kessler, representing the players' union, asked Crotty to prevent enforcement of the suspension for two weeks so that Failla can return from a vacation and rule.

In all honesty it's really too bad that this case has become more about the NFL's arbitration process than domestic abuse.

U.S. District Judge Katherine Polk Failla denied Ezekiel Elliott's request for a preliminary injunction on Monday night, allowing the six-game suspension the NFL handed the running back for violating the league's personal conduct policy to begin.

However, enforcement of the order is stayed for 24 hours, "to afford the parties an opportunity to consider their appellate options." The next move in this case is likely an NFLPA appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which has jurisdiction over appeals from the district courts in Connecticut, Vermont, and New York.

This thing is going to be allowed to be dragged out until after he has retired.

That's good for you. Hopefully he can put up points like Elliott did.

2nd circuit court’s ruling is not on the merits of the Zeke Elliott argument. It puts him on the field til a 3-judge panel decides his fate
