Judges for Deflategate appeal hearing have been named
Deflategate is back in the news this week, as Tom Brady and Roger Goodell are set to do battle in court again. Their hearing with the U.S. Appeal's Court will be held on March 3 at 2 p.m., and the judges for the case have been named.
Robert A. Katzmann, Denny Chin and Barrington D. Parker will hear the case. Katzmann and Chin are both Democratic appointees, which is good news for Brady, as both are Democratic appointees. Democratic appointees generally favor labor over management. Parker is a Republican appointee and usually favors management over labor.
Brady, the Patriots and their fans are going to be happy about this, as we've been told that having the right judges could make or break the case. All he needs is two of the three judges to vote in his favor, and Katzmann and Chin could very well do that. You can read Tom E. Curran's full report here, which features his "Quick Slants" podcast that talks about this very subject.
