Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

MIN­NEAPO­LIS — The NFL and the NFL Play­ers As­so­ci­a­tion have been or­dered into set­tle­ment ne­go­ti­a­tions on the case filed in fed­eral court by the union over Adrian Peter­son’s sus­pen­sion. U.S. Mag­is­trate Judge Janie Mayeron is­sued her or­der Mon­day. She set a set­tle­ment con­fer­ence for Aug. 13, a half-hour fol­low­ing a pre­vi­ously sched­uled hear­ing on the case in front of U.S. Dis­trict Judge David Doty. The NFLPA filed a pe­ti­tion last Novem­ber, seek­ing a rejection of NFL ar­bi­tra­tor Harold Hen­der­son’s de­ci­sion to deny Peter­son’s ap­peal of his sus­pen­sion. Doty sided with the union in Fe­bru­ary, and the league ap­pealed. The As­so­ci­ated Press
