NFLPA Files Restraining Order to Block Upholding of Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

Ezekiel Elliott Suspension Could Be Reduced: Report

The first is Kia Wright Roberts, the NFL's Director of Investigations.

Elliott was banned for six games last month after a year-long investigation into a domestic violence case in OH, even though prosecutors had decided not to pursue a case against him after accusations from his former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson.

That memo, produced by league director of investigations Kia Wright Roberts following her interviews with Thompson, became a significant battleground in Elliott's appeal of a six-game suspension this week in NY.

Elliott's hearing for the appeal of his six-game suspension began on Tuesday and lasted almost 10 hours, according to a report.

The Star-Telegram also added that Friel, who ultimately recommended the six-game suspension for Elliott, barred Roberts from attending the meeting. You mean to tell me prosecutors in OH decided not to bring chargers against Elliott, and the only person who interviewed Elliott's accuser said there's no suspension here ... and yet he got six games?

"According to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Plano, just outside the Cowboys' Frisco headquarters, the NFLPA said Elliott was subject to one of "the most fundamentally unfair arbitral processes conceivable". Now it's up to Henderson to make a decision.

Her time away was due to a positive drug test for the banned substance meldonium at the Australian Open. It hasn't been easy sailing for Nadal, or for that matter his perennial rival Roger Federer.

It's those failures of the process that Elliott and the NFLPA attacked during the appeal hearing and plan to exploit if they have to go to federal court to seek a temporary injunction.

Elliott, who led the National Football League in rushing last season, was not charged with any crime.

The date is key because if a decision is not made by Tuesday, Elliott could be on the field for the September 10 season opener against the New York Giants.

In the filing, the NFLPA alleges "there was a League-orchestrated conspiracy by senior NFL executives.to hide critical information - which would completely exonerate Elliott".

If Elliott's full suspension is upheld on appeal, he would be barred from taking part in any team activities starting on September 2 unless the court issues a stay.

Elliott denied the allegations under oath in the appeal hearing, according to the lawsuit.
