Court overturns Peterson suspension
26 Feb 2015 22:10
Adrian Peterson's suspension from the NFL has been overturned by a United States District Court.
-
The Minnesota Vikings running back has been suspended since November, when he pleaded no contest to a charge of reckless assault stemming from an incident in which he disciplined his four-year-old son by hitting him with a tree branch.
-
The National Football League Players' Association (NFLPA) successfully argued that Peterson's suspension was not valid as it applied the standards of the league's new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) to an incident which took place before the policy was revised.
-
Judge David S Doty's ruling stipulated that he remains subject to discipline under the previous CBA, meaning he is not yet clear to return to action.
-
The ruling concluded: "The petition to vacate arbitration award is granted. The case is remanded for such further proceedings consistent with this order as the CBA may permit."
