Lawyers for NFL, players union in court again to talk ‘Deflategate’ deal

August 13, 2015

According to a court official, lawyers for the National Football League and its players union returned to federal court on Thursday (Aug 13) to discuss a potential settlement of litigation over New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady’s “Deflategate” suspension.



The two sides met privately in New York with U.S. District Judge Richard Berman, who has told both parties to seek a resolution before the Patriots’ season begins on Sept. 10.

Brady and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who imposed the four-game suspension, were not at the conference, the official said.
