MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A players' union lawsuit accusing NFL team owners of setting a secret salary cap in 2010 was kept alive by a federal appeals court Friday.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals partially reversal a federal judge's order that had rejected NFL Players Association's collusion claim.
The three-judge appeals court panel that heard oral arguments in January disagreed with U.S. District Judge David Doty on one of the NFLPA's two arguments for pursuing damages despite the 2011 collective bargaining agreement that was supposed to settle such lawsuits.
The appeals court sent the case back to Doty's jurisdiction in Minneapolis for further proceedings.
