Court clears way for sus­pen­sion of El­liott

El Dorado News-Times - - Sports -

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — A fed­eral ap­peals court has lifted an in­junc­tion that blocked a six-game sus­pen­sion for Dal­las Cow­boys star Ezekiel El­liott, clear­ing the way for the NFL's pun­ish­ment over do­mes­tic vi­o­lence al­le­ga­tions and likely lead­ing to the run­ning back's le­gal team seek­ing fur­ther re­lief.

The 5th U.S. Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals in New Or­leans on Thurs­day granted the league's emer­gency re­quest to set aside the in­junc­tion and or­dered the district court in Texas to dis­miss El­liott's case. The three-judge panel voted 2-1 to back the NFL's ar­gu­ment.

A fed­eral judge in Texas is­sued an in­junc­tion that blocked the sus­pen­sion last month.
