Injunctions and the NFL

The use of injunctive relief has been discussed at length in this blog. Last week a federal judge in Minnesota issued an injunction preventing the National Football League from suspending several players for violation of its anti-doping policy including New Orleans Saint Deuce McAllister (pictured right). Until further ruling from the Court, McAllister and the other players may continue to play on Sunday. McAllister carried the ball one time yesterday in the Saints' victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
