 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -A federal judge has set a June 15 trial date for Vikings stars Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, who tested positive for a banned substance last year.
The players are seeking monetary damages in addition to having a four-game suspension from the NFL overturned. The players' union has said the league didn't properly inform the players that a supplement called StarCaps contained the banned diuretic bumetanide.
Bumetanide can be used as a masking agent for steroids.
The defensive tackles were suspended late last season but got an injunction in mid-December that allowed them to play in the postseason.
The suspensions would begin next season if they are upheld.
