The Blitz 10/2/17- Ezekiel Elliott Hearing Special Edition

The Blitz
A hearing took place in a Fifth Circuit courtroom at 1:00 PM October second to determine a number of vital issues that will determine his availability as the season progresses.  The NFL asked the court for two things (1) a stay on Judge Mazzant’s injunction which has allowed Elliott to play thus far this season and (2) a decision dismissing the case on its merits.  The hearing lasted about an hour and no decisions were rendered at the hearing, but Judge Prado closed by stating that the court would issue its decision “as soon as we can.”  Here’s a Twitter wrap-up of what took place:

Audio for the hearing was expected to drop at 5:00 PM and arrived as scheduled.

Great summary of hearing from Kate Hairopoulos. Another audio of the hearing is also included here.

After the hearing, around 10:00 PM EDT, Jeffrey Kessler filed a letter detailing the “new” case law presented for the first time earlier at the hearing.
