No ruling on stay from court, which means NFL doors will stay locked at least through the weekend

Our friend Albert Breer of the NFL Network is reporting that as of Friday at 6 p.m., the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis had closed for the week, which means there will be no ruling regarding the stay in the case of the NFL owners and players this week.
It was initially believed that there would be some sort of decision forthcoming this week regarding whether or not the lockout would stay in place until the hearing between the two sides, which is scheduled for the same court on June 3. But no word from the court means that the doors throughout the league will stay locked to the players, at least through the weekend.
The lockout, which has been on again and off again for approximately eight weeks, is the first work stoppage in the NFL since 1987.
