On August 7, 2015, the NFL and NFLPA offered their Deflategate filings– motions and memorandum of law to federal court Judge Richard Berman of the Southern District of New York.
Previously, I collected a legal snapshot of views after the Deflategate transcript that was released.
By request, I’ve collected various legal snapshot of views for the Deflategate filings below, specifically the NFL and NFLPA Memorandum of Law. Also added some additional comments.
It makes it easier to read and further discuss the contents by putting these things in one place. It also serves as a time capsule.
Have any additional questions, comments? Put them below. Please read the other comments first to see if I’ve already answered them. I do not have a staff because I’d rather keep overhead low and my own money.
It’s sometimes hard to talk about legal issues to a broad audience without simplifying to the point of complete inaccuracy. So if you have any Deflategate filings, memorandum of law legal questions of a more or less detailed nature than above, please let me know. My comment community is usually a very good one. Sometimes the comments are so good, I create new blog posts just to highlight how good some of the comments are. Unusual, I know.
(Please note. This is my blog, it has my name on it, so I have rules. For those who don’t know, I approve each comment individually and will approve most stuff unless it is abusive or spam. Unlike some places on the web, I strongly prefer for people to attack arguments and NOT people. What that means is that I do not want any personal attacks against people you dislike or other commenters. Avoiding personal attacks make the comments helpful to others’ understanding and doesn’t derail conversation into middle school neener neener stuff. This is a forum to create reasoned commentary and questions on the legal issues and not for trash talk because there are many other places on the web for that, and I do not want to facilitate it. In addition, since the issues right now are mostly ones of process and law, I am not interested in this being a forum for discussing the detailed facts unless they have some relevance to the process issues which are the main ones relevant in the on-going court case. Think of this as fair notice. Thank you kindly for your cooperation.)
