NFL plans to appeal ruling on Vikings RB Adrian Peterson
The NFL will appeal the Thursday ruling that reversed an arbitrator's decision on
U.S. District Judge David Doty ruled for the NFL to vacate the upheld suspension via arbitration, with the case going back to arbitrator Harold Henderson. Peterson pleaded no contest to reckless assault on his son, which originated with child abuse allegations.
With the ruling, Peterson will revert back to the Commissioner's Exempt list.
The NFL released a statement on its desire to appeal the ruling.
"Judge Doty's order did not contain any determinations concerning the fairness of the appeals process under the CBA, including the commissioner's longstanding authority to appoint a designee to act as hearin officer," the statement reads. "Even so, we believe strongly that Judge Doty's order is incorrect and fundamentally at odds with well-established legal precedent governing the district court's role in reviewing arbitration decisions. As a result, we have filed a notice of appeal to have the ruling reviewed by the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. In the interim, Adrian Peterson will be returned to the Commissioner Exempt List pending further proceedings by appeals officer Harold Henderson or a determination by the Eighth Circuit Court."
NFL on Panthers' Greg Hardy: He hasn't been disciplined
“He hasn’t been disciplined," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Charlotte Observer. "There is nothing for him to seek reinstatement from at this point."
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell placed Hardy on the Commissioner's Exempt list early this season. Hardy was accused of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Holder, and was found guilty by a judge last summer. However, upon appeal to a jury, the case was dismissed after Holder failed to show up to court and shut off communication with the prosecution.
Hardy wants to be reinstated to the 53-man roster now that a federal judge ruled in favor of Vikings running back Adrian Peterson in his case against the NFL. Judge David Doty ruled that an NFL arbitrator wrongly upheld the league's suspension against him and referred his case back to the collective bargaining agreement.

After Peterson ruling, Hardy reportedly seeks reinstatement
With a federal judge tossing out an NFL arbitrator's decision to uphold Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's suspension,
Both Peterson and Hardy have been on the Commissioner's Exempt list following off-field legal issues. Peterson pleaded no contest to reckless assault on his son, which originally stemmed from child abuse allegations.
Hardy was charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend and found guilty by a North Carolina judge. Hardy appealed the ruling to a jury, though the prosecution threw the case out once Hardy's ex, Nicole Holder, failed to show to court or cooperate in the case.
Judge David Doty ruled in favor of Peterson, which opens the door to his reinstatement to the league. The arbitrator's ruling that allowed the NFL to uphold the suspension has been thrown out, sending the case back to the collective bargaining agreement.
