Brady Vows to Fight on, Files Lawsuit to Stop Suspension

BradyFOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady asked a federal judge in Minnesota to overturn his four-game suspension for the scandal known as “Deflategate.”

In a filing Wednesday, lawyers working with the NFL Players Association asked U.S. District Judge David Doty to vacate the suspension or at least put it on hold until the case can be heard.

Attorney Jeffrey Kessler told The Associated Press that the league broke at least four procedural rules when it suspended the reigning Super Bowl MVP for “his alleged ‘general awareness’ that somebody else violated a policy.”

The union asked Doty to throw out the suspension before Sept. 4. That would allowBrady to participate in all practices before the Patriots’ Sept. 10 season opener against the Steelers.

If Doty needs more time, Brady’s lawyers are asking him for an injunction that would prevent the league from enforcing the suspension.
