Jonathan Vilma is taking all the steps he can to assure he will be on an NFL field this season.
Vilma is banking on the injunction taking the power of being judge and jury out of Goodell’s hands and placing them in an actual judges hands.
That would be Judge Helen G. Berrigan of the Eastern District of Louisiana.
Vilma smartly filed the injunction in her court because that is where his defamation of character suit is filed also.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out as training camp approaches. The commissioner has until July 5 to respond to the defamation suit and I’m sure he will drag this process out.
Roger “The Hammer” Goodell is not one to back down and has yet to have any of his decisions reversed especially not by someone other than himself.
