U.S. District Court Judge David S. Doty will hear arguments in the NFLPA's collusion complaint against the NFL on Sept. 6, Barbara Berens, an attorney representing the union, confirmed to PFW on Wednesday evening. ESPN and NFL.com first reported news of the hearing earlier Wednesday.
The hearing is slated for 2:30 p.m. EST, Berens said.
The NFLPA filed a federal lawsuit in the District of Minnesota in May, charging that the NFL and club owners "engaged in a secret .... collusive and circumventing agreement" to install a salary cap in the 2010 league year, which was uncapped.
The league holds that the "filing of these claims is prohibited by the Collective Bargaining Agreement and separately, by an agreement signed by the players’ attorneys last August," spokesman Greg Aiello said in May. "The claims have absolutely no merit and we fully expect them to be dismissed.
“On multiple occasions, the players and their representatives specifically dismissed all claims, known or unknown, whether pending or not regarding alleged violations of the 2006 CBA and the related settlement agreement."
