Bounty matter goes back to federal court
NEW ORLEANS – Jonathan Vilma again is asking a federal judge to overturn his suspension in the NFL’s bounty probe of the New Orleans Saints, and the NFL Players Association is making a similar request on behalf of three other players.
In papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Orleans on Monday, Vilma said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell conducted a “farcical review” of previously overturned disciplinary action before ruling last week that the Saints linebacker would remain suspended for the season.
Although Vilma still has an appeal pending within the framework of the NFL’s labor agreement, the linebacker said that Goodell has continued to abuse his power and demonstrate bias, leaving no hope for a fair process that would respect Vilma’s “industrial due process rights.”
