Judge reverses field, orders Goodell deposition
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A Texas judge reversed an earlier ruling and said Wednesday that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell can be questioned by attorneys for ticket-holders who sued after they were displaced when seats weren’t properly installed for the 2011 Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium.
The ruling issued Wednesday by U.S. Magistrate Judge Renee Toliver in Dallas states that Goodell must give a deposition at NFL headquarters in New York no later than Aug. 5.
About 1,250 temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington were deemed unsafe just hours before the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25. That forced about 850 ticket-holders to move to new seats, and 400 others to watch from standing-room locations.
