Ezekiel Elliott files lawsuit alleging National Football League 'conspiracy' resulted in 6-game suspension

Kessler claims the NFL "deliberately omitted a conclusion" that had been made by the league's lead investigator, Kia Roberts during the year-long probe.
According to Florio, if the union's claim is accurate, Goodell may have to vacate the suspension, then re-hear the entire case, with the input of Roberts.
It is a separate incident, and ultimately might have no implications on the appeal of his suspension, but Elliott's actions and rationale for the incident don't do him any favors. Roberts further testified, according to the hearing transcripts, that she would not have recommended discipline for Elliott based on her findings and that she was not included in the part of the process where the committee that investigated the Elliott matter recommended discipline to commissioner Roger Goodell.
According to the filing, Kia Wright Roberts, the NFL's director of investigations, testified Tuesday that she was the only National Football League employee who interviewed the running back's accuser, Tiffany Thompson, during the investigation and that she would not have recommended discipline for Elliott based on what she found.
Lockhart added that Goodell was aware of any opinions held by investigators who worked the case, and he seemed to confirm that Roberts believed Thompson's story had inconsistencies and Elliott should not be suspended. The NFLPA petition comes after the union and Elliott already planned to call into question Thompson's credibility.
"Elliott and the NFLPA attacked Roberts' absence as a process failure during the appeal hearing and plan to exploit it if they go to federal court to seek a temporary injunction against a suspension".
"No. In fact, at Kia's level, she wouldn't, and she didn't". If successful, Elliott would be eligible to play in the Cowboys opener against the New York Giants. It seems the union has learned from past experience: Immediately after Goodell upheld Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension in July 2015, the league filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in NY asking that a judge confirm its decision.
It was Roberts' recommendation that Elliott not receive a suspension that led to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expressing confidence at the start of training camp that his star back would be cleared by the league; Hill wrote that Jones was told by an NFL executive that Elliott would not be suspended.
McAdoo gave no indications that he would rest either player in the final two preseason games, which is somewhat understandable. Additionally WRs Dwayne Harris (upper body) and Tavarres King (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.
And it is worth mentioning that the team probably would not have won the match had not been for the subs. "We kept playing today". United have made a fast start in the league with three wins from three , and Lindelof admits he'd like to be part of the action.
