NFL PLAYERS AGREE TO MEDIATION UNDER OVERSIGHT OF FEDERAL COURT
Washington, D.C. – The class of NFL players wrote to Judge Susan Nelson today, embracing her recommendation to participate in mediation under the oversight of the federal court of Minnesota.
Though the injunction to lift the owners’ lockout remains under Judge Nelson’s consideration, the players took to heart her advice given during Wednesday’s hearing that the two sides should not delay to meet.
The players expressed their hope that mediation under court oversight will begin immediately.
