According to New York Law Journal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has reinstated the four-game suspension of New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady alleging that he did tamper with the air pressure in footballs during the American Football Conference (AFC) Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts on January 18, 2015. In upholding the commissioner’s suspension of Brady, the court said it had an extremely limited roll to determine if the arbitration proceedings and award met the minimum legal standards established by the Labor Management Relations Act.
The court case pitting the players’ association against the commission had already been heard by Southern District Judge Richard Berman who had thrown out the four game suspension. The players’ association says they have very few alternatives left and that Brady will probably have to sit out the four game suspension at the start of the 2016 season.
