Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals
You were hoping that the three-judge, Eighth Circuit panel would not vote along “party” lines. Everyone was told that the Eighth Circuit was a “conservative” court, a court that was “pro-business.” Obviously, that’s bad news for the players.
The three judges of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals now have time to rule on the motion for a stay pending the appeal. If that stay is granted, the NFL lockout will continue.
