TOM BRADY The Latest
On September 3, 2015 the Honorable R. Berman ruled in favor of New England Quarterback Tom Brady on his legal fight with the NFL. In essence, Judge Berman nullified Brady’s four game suspension imposed by the NFL in a 40 page decision by stating that the NFL violated Brady’s DUE PROCESS (i.e., FAIRNESS) rights. It is a significant blow to the NFL and its legal team. Judge Berman focused his legal ruling on the following three main points:
1) The NFL provided inadequate notice to Brady of both his potential discipline ( four game suspension) and his alleged misconduct;
2) The NFL denied Brady to examine one of the two lead investigators, namely NFL Executive Vice President and General Counsel Jeff Pash; and
3) The NFL denied Brady equal access to investigative files, including witness interview notes.
From one attorney to another, CONGRATULATIONS to Brady attorney Jeffrey Kessler and the rest of his legal team. HARD work and determination to WIN for your client is ALWAYS the only goal.
