Zeke is represented by Jeffrey Kessler, who previously was counsel on the Tom Brady Deflate-Gate appeal. Despite Kessler helping get Brady’s 4 game suspension overturned, the NFL went to court and had the suspension reinstated.
Today, Elliott will plead his case to arbitrator Harold Henderson, who heard Adrian Peterson’s child abuse suspension appeal and Greg Harey’s domestic violence suspension appeal.
Should Zeke’s suspension be upheld, he is expected to file a lawsuit in federal court. Otherwise, taking his case to court would delay his ban, permitting him to start the regular season.
Think we know which direction this is heading.
