NFL files lawsuit against Mecklenburg County for Hardy evidence

18 March 2015 - 04:07 PM

The National Football League (NFL) is suing the North Carolina Attorney General and the Mecklenburg County District Attorney over the Greg Hardy domestic violence case. 

 

After the charges were dismissed, the NFL filed a motion to have the evidence in the first trial unsealed so that it could make a decision on Hardy's future with the league.

But the exhibits had been returned to the district attorney's office and Hardy's attorney, Chris Fialko, on Feb. 11, two days after the charges were dismissed against Hardy.

That's when the league claims an Assistant District Attorney received the state's exhibits.

Fialko filed his own motion Feb. 16, asking the court to deny the NFL's request. That same day, Superior Court Judge Robert Bell signed an order doing just that.

The NFL argues that evidence filed in the first trial are considered public record.

The lawsuit says Hardy is the subject of disciplinary action by the league. Attorneys say they demanded access to the evidence again on March 11.

"Mr. Murray has refused Plaintiff access to the requested exhibits and refused to mediate the dispute," the lawsuit claims. "All legal proceedings against Mr. Hardy have concluded, therefore, the exhibits admitted in evidence and held by the District Attorney are no longer trial preparation materials."

The lawsuit claims Murray's refusal to grant access to the evidence in the case violates "fundamental openness and transparency in government as codified in the Public Records Act."

The league is requesting an immediate hearing by an appeals court and demanding Murray provide any evidence that the state has in its possession.

What I gather from this is that they are hellbent on suspending Greg Hardy, but can't justify a suspension without evidence. IMO the NFL should stop this witch hunt and get over it.

 


Colts propose 'bonus field goal'

18 March 2015 - 01:45 PM

"The Colts are asking for the league to consider an intriguing new scoring system in the preseason. Their proposal calls for a "bonus field goal" that would allow teams to kick an extra point following a successful two-point try. The trick? The tacked-on PAT would come from 50 yards out. This feels like a long shot."

Jim Irsay must be on crack or something.

Is Brenton Bersin really that bad?

I seriously do not understand what the Brenton Bersin hate is for. He's our #5 receiver. Hardly our biggest replacement priority.
