Get Your “Deflategate” Pleadings Here!

I hope to write more in the coming week about the legal issues in the Deflategate federal court case in the Southern District of New York.  For the moment, however, I thought readers might be interested in reviewing the docket sheet and several key pleadings filed in the case so far.  Some of them, particularly the docket sheet, are quite amusing.  I was especially amused by an order the judge entered on July 30 (docket no. 11):

Based upon the record herein, the Court directs as follows: 1− While this litigation is ongoing, it is appropriate (and helpful) for all counsel and all parties in this case to tone down their rhetoric.

Here is a list of key pleadings:

NFL’s Complaint

Answer and Counterclaim

Memorandum of Law in Support of Motion to Confirm Arbitration Award

Memorandum of Law in Support of Motion to Vacate Arbitration Award

UPDATE: 9/3/15  The judge issued his much anticipated ruling today; He vacated the arbitration award entirely, thereby revoking Tom Brady’s 4 game suspension.  I hear folks are dancing in the streets in Boston.
