Court rules that NFL lockout will remain in place
|05.16.11 at 6:55 pm ET|
The owners won a major battle in the continuing lockout war on Monday, as the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided that the lockout should remain in place until a full appeal is heard. The judges ruled 2-1 that the stay should remain, saying the NFL has proven it will “likely will suffer some degree of irreparable harm without a stay.” The next major milestone is likely to come June 3, when a hearing will be held to decide the legality of the lockout. The lockout, which is now approaching its 10th week, is the longest work stoppage in NFL history.
