NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A Louisiana judge has ordered NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and three staff members from the January NFC title game under oath in September for the scandalous "no appeal" that helped Los Angeles Aries beat New Orleans January game for NFC title, said lawyer
Attorney Antonio Lemon, who filed a case for the game that directed Aries to Super Bowl, said he and the league's lawyers would choose a mutually acceptable date to deposit in New Orleans – by banning any league appeals that he could and delay or repeal interrogation.
A league spokesperson declined comment.
LeMon lawsuit seeks $ 75,000 in damages –
Civil District Judge Nicole Sheppard of New Orleans ruled earlier this month that LeMon's case be resumed. At the time, she also ruled that LeMon could require documents and ask questions of NFL officials. She said on Monday that the deposit should be made in September. According to LeMon, on August 22, she also scheduled the next hearing in the case.
Other cases for hearing the conversation were closed in federal court, where they failed. These included an effort to make the game or a crucial part of it play before the Rams met with the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, which the Patriots won.
LeMon, whose lawsuit alleges fraud by NFL officials, drafted a lawsuit to avoid being sued in federal court, in part by keeping the claimed damages low. He said Monday that he intends to make all the money he has earned through a former St. Gleason star charity campaign to help people with neuromuscular disorders. Gleason was diagnosed with ALS in 2011
