The court has been adjourned for a second time during Wednesday’s antitrust hearing, with session expected to pick back up at 3:00 p.m. ET.
Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe has a few interesting facts about the proceedings thus far.
Judge Susan Nelson reportedly mentioned mediation a few times early in the session, and wondered why the owners and players aren’t in mediation now instead.
Nelson also indicated that she’s “having a hard time with is a lockout being legal after a union decertification” according to Bedard.
The NFL’s attorney David Boies spent a lot more time answering questions from Judge Nelson than Jim Quinn, the attorney for the players.
“Nelson was very prepared,” Bedard writes. “Said this is all she’s done for two weeks.”
Perhaps that means we won’t have to wait too long for a decision. Beyond that, we’ll leave the analysis to those with law degrees.
