Could Deflategate Go To SCOTUS? Yes, But God, We Hope It Doesn't
A panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the NFL's suspension against Tom Brady, but if the NFLPA wants to, it can appeal to SCOTUS.By Jamal Andress | April 25, 2016
So, could Deflategate (Brady v. NFL) go to the Supreme Court? Well, the short answer is yes, but it's highly — highly — unlikely.
In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the NFL's four-game suspension against Tom Brady.
That's after a federal district judge overturned the NFL's suspension last summer, keeping Brady on the field for the entire 2015 season.
