In news that will shock us all, Snyder did not fully cooperate with Wilkinson, tried to prevent her from talking to people and sent private investigators after former employees.

Get rid of him already.

NFL is taking this lawsuit seriously it seems,

https://www.clarkcountycourts.us/Anonymous/CaseDetail.aspx?CaseID=12178894

JUST IN: The NFL has brought in powerhouse litigator Brad Karp and the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison to defend the league in the Jon Gruden lawsuit. Karp was lead counsel in the concussion case & Paul Weiss wrote the investigative report in Deflategate.

The above link from the Clark County Courts is free to access and can be used to follow any new filings in the case I think

Oh look, the NFL is investigating Snyder again, this time with Mary Jo White in the lead and a written report being prepared:

I found this almost comical:
It is comical, but it‘a also interesting. (To me, at least.)

The NFL hates to be forced into a do-over for damage-control. It means they have to waste time and money for something they thought was already behind them.

They have already pinned the responsibility for the lack of transparency on Snyder. Which feels like an ominous foreshadowing.

Mary Jo White (and Debevoise) are even more credible than I used to think Ted Wells was.....but we all know how that ended up.

White will detail her findings in a written report, which will be released to the public since the allegation against Snyder was made in a public forum, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Friday.
Based on past experience, that's the tale the NFL wanted to get out now, but months/years later there should be no surprise if it ends up as something like a 3-paragraph release.

A three-paragraph release approved by the NFL

Yeah, thought I remembered her name from the Supreme Court and my law school study guides. At least the NFL is spreading the corruption to new firms after fanging Paul, Weiss and Covington.

Judge denies the NFL’s motions to have Gruden’s lawsuit either sent to arbitration or dismissed outright:
A Nevada judge ruled in favor of former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden on two motions Wednesday, opening the possibility of a jury trial on his "tortious interference" claim that the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell selectively leaked Gruden's emails to force his removal on Oct. 11.

Judge Nancy L. Allf denied the NFL's motion to compel arbitration as well as the league's motion to dismiss the case outright. The suit will now go to trial unless a settlement is reached. Allf gave no timeline, though, for the next proceeding.

The NFL said in a statement given to multiple media outlets that it would appeal.
