Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson found himself in the unenviable position of having most of his causes of action against the NFLPA dismissed in a lawsuit that has been waged for over two years. Despite some disturbing pleadings regarding union misconduct and retaliation, Southern District of New York Judge Richard Sullivan denied Johnson’s motion for discovery and ordered him to respond to the NFLPA’s motion for summary judgment, which could put an end to his case.
