Judge says her ruling on lockout will take ‘couple of weeks’ – NFL.com

ST. PAUL, MINN. — U.S. District Court Judge Susan Nelson said Wednesday that she will take the NFL and NFL Players Association’s arguments “under advisement,” but she needs “a couple of weeks” to issue a ruling on the players’ request for an injunction to lift the league-imposed lockout.

Nelson also advised the sides after the five-hour hearing that they should resume negotiations in the setting of federal court, where she said the risks presented because of the pending National Labor Relations Board case would be eliminated.

The NFL said it prefers to return to the Federal Conciliation and Mediation Service office in Washington D.C., where the sides went through 16 days of mediated collective bargaining before talks broke down and led to the March 11 union decertification and lockout.
