Judge Sets Aug 10 Hearing On NFL Retirees’ Case

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A federal judge has set an Aug. 10 hearing to discuss the still-pending case filed against the NFL by retired players.

 

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson scheduled the hearing Monday.

 

Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller and other retirees have sued both the NFL and the NFL Players Association, saying they were illegally left out of the labor talks after taking part in court-ordered mediation sessions earlier this year. They say both sides conspired to keep benefit levels and pension payments low in a new collective bargaining agreement. Marcus Allen and Franco Harris are among the other plaintiffs.

 

The hearing will be held at the federal courthouse in St. Paul, Minn.
