5th Circuit Court of Appeals vacates Ezekiel Elliott's initial injunction

5th Circuit Court of Appeals vacates Ezekiel Elliott's initial injunction

Ezekiel Elliott lost the pivotal court battle that he needed on Thursday, as Louisiana's 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the jurisdiction of his lawsuit and injunction against the NFL's six-game suspension for violating the league's domestic violence policy are both invalid.

The Cowboys happen to be on a bye week - which gives Zeke's team some time to counterpunch and fight the ruling.

However, the NFLPA is expected to re-file the case with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY and seek a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction in order to keep Elliott playing, according to Gabe Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program.

The NFL has requested for a stay of the injunction that is allowing Elliott to play.

The hope was that the Fifth Circuit judges will agree where Mazzant did not.

Because the Cowboys do not play this week, the union has more time to file motions before Elliott's suspension might affect his chances of playing in a game. Since the National Football League was not granted stay this means Elliott will be able to play for the rest of the season.

Elliott was originally suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in August after the league concluded he had several physical confrontations last summer with his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson. Mazzant ruled that Elliott did not receive a fair appeal hearing before Henderson, in large part because Elliott's accuser and Goodell did not testify.

Three years ago, the National Football League stiffened its domestic violence policy with the six-game standard and more investigative power.

Elliott, 22, was never charged and has denied wrongdoing.
