Injunction hearing set for Thursday

Injunction hearing set for Thursday

This is something I'm going to have to live with beyond football.

Elliott will remain eligible to play until a ruling is handed down, and with the hearing scheduled later in the week, that likely improves the running back's chances of remaining eligible for Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Ezekiel Elliott didn't find out until Friday morning he was playing today. Elliott, who was not arrested or charged in the case, maintains his innocence after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend in Columbus, Ohio.

Elliott received an administrative stay from the NY federal court last Friday, reinstating his eligibility for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. On Tuesday, Failla denied to issue a stay ahead of Elliott's appeal, which lawyers for the NFL Players Association filed on Wednesday. Elliott and the NFLPA want judges to grant them a preliminary injunction.

Zara Factory Workers Slipping Notes For Help
Unpaid factory workers have allegedly been leaving secret notes for shoppers at fashion giant Zara in a dispute over unpaid wages. They introduced themselves as "textile workers in Turkey who have been working for years to make profits for brands".

A panel of federal judges will hear Elliott's request for an injunction that overturns Judge Katherine Polk Failla's ruling from last week.

Elliott received a six-game suspension on August 11 for a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy related to domestic violence allegations by a former girlfriend. "He knows the system".

Elliott's legal team believes he was treated unfairly by the NFL, while league attorneys say a labor deal backed by federal law was followed when Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Elliott after a yearlong investigation.
