The National Football League’s challenge to a trial court’s decision to vacate an arbitration decision suspending New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be heard after the Super Bowl. The NFL has appealed the order of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York that vacated an arbitration decision issued by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that suspended Brady for four games. Among other things, the district court took issue with the fundamental fairness of the commissioner’s decision based on concerns about inadequate notice of potential discipline, denial of the opportunity to cross examine lead investigators, and denial of access to investigative files.

The current NFL season concludes in February 2016, following Super Bowl 50.
