Update on CBS - NFL Players Fantasy League Dispute

In response to the lawsuit filed by CBS against the NFLPA in Minnesota that I mentioned last week, NFL Players Inc., the entity that handles the group licensing and marketing for the players, has filed its own lawsuit this week against CBS in federal court in Miami. According to the press release, NFL Players asserts that CBS filed the lawsuit in the wrong jurisdiction because the case has no connection to Minnesota and that the filing in Minneapolis names the wrong defendant -- the NFLPA rather than NFL Players Inc. This is getting good....


Obviously the NFLPA does not want this case to remain in the 8th Circuit.
