8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out a judge’s order lifting the NFL lockout, possibly giving the league leverage in talks aimed at reaching a new labor deal.
The Jets have joined several other NFL teams who have said they were unaware of and don’t support a brief filed by the NFL Coaches Association that sided with the players against the owners.
The NFL hasn’t wavered in this message to its locked-out players: Get out of the courts and come back to the bargaining table.
A federal appeals court agreed Tuesday to fast track the NFL’s request to put its labor lockout in place until a new deal is finally worked out.
