Tom Brady’s Suspension is Overturned

Friday, September 04, 2015

 

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has had his four game suspension overturned by New York Federal Court Judge Richard Berman.

"Based upon the foregoing and applicable legal authorities, the cour hereby denies the Management Council's motion to confirm the Award and grants the Players Association's motion  to vacate the Award, thereby vacating the four-game suspension of Tom Brady, effective immediatley," said Judge Richard Berman in a statement.

Judge Berman continued in his statement " The Award is premised upon several significant legal deficiencies, including (A) inadequate notice to Brady of both his potential discipline (fourgame suspension) and his alleged misconduct; (B) denial of the opportunity for Brady to examine one of two lead investigators, namely NFL Executive Vice President and General Counsel Jeff Pash; and (C) denial of equal access to investigative files, including witnessinterview notes."

Judge Berman's ruling does not put an end to deflategate neccessarily, as the NFL can still appeal but it will likely not be heard before the Patriots week one game.
