La’el Collins’ Request For A Temporary Restraining Order Is Denied Tuesday

-

BREAKING- Judge Amos Mazzant III denied Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle La’el Collins’ request for a temporary restraining order against the NFL and his bid to overturn his 5-game suspension. On Friday the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas held a hearing to consider Collins’ request for a temporary restraining order against the NFL, however, the Court did not immediately rule as Collins was not able to play in Sunday’s 44-20 thrashing of the New York Giants by the Dallas Cowboys. On Tuesday, however, the Court put forth its ruling, denying  the embattled Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman’s bid to play.

Judge Mazzant, who gained a measure of notoriety within the 2017 high profile Ezekiel Elliott case against the NFL, did not deny the motion without providing a few choice words for the NFL.

“The Court takes no comfort in enforcing an arbitration award that upholds a punishment that, arguably, is not permissible under the parties’ CBA. But, just as the Court cannot embrace its own opinion as to the validity of Collins’ claims or the out-of-bounds nature of the NFL’s disciplinary decisions, the Court cannot disregard an arbitrator’s reasonable construction of the parties’ agreements.”

Collins was suspended for 5 games and alleged to have bribed the test collector.
