Judge to Hear Arguments from Brady and Brees Tomorrow

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson has decided to hear arguments from attorneys for Tom Brady, Drew Brees and other current players, as well as attorneys for retired players according to the Associated Press.

The current players and retirees have filed similar antitrust lawsuits against the league in addition to their requests for an injunction to stop the lockout.

The arguments will be heard Wednesday. The players say the lockout should be stopped because it is causing irreparable harm. The retirees say it could jeopardize retirement benefits subsidized by the league.

The retirees asked to consolidate the cases. Attorneys for the NFL didn’t oppose combining the cases, but they want the lockout kept in place.
