SUSAN RICHARD NELSON, United States District Judge
Plaintiffs’ Motion to Expedite the Briefing Schedule and Hearing [Doc. No. 19] is
The hearing on Wednesday, April 6, 2011, will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Devitt
Courtroom on the first floor of the Warren E. Burger Federal Courthouse, 316 North Robert
Street, St. Paul, Minnesota 55101. The Court will hear Plaintiffs’ Motion for a Preliminary
Injunction in Brady v. Nat’l Football League, 11-CV-639 SRN/JJG, and Plaintiffs’ Motion for a
Preliminary Injunction in Eller v. Nat’l Football League, 11-CV-748 SRN/JJG, in that order.
Counsel on each side of each matter will have 20 minutes to argue and the moving party in both
cases may reserve time for rebuttal. In light of the fact that the NFL does not oppose Plaintiffs’
Motion to Consolidate [Doc. No. 15] in Eller v. Nat’l Football League, the Court will permit
Plaintiffs’ counsel in Brady v. Nat’l Football League the opportunity to respond to the motion at
the conclusion of the hearing.
Dated: April 4, 2011
