The NFLPA filed for a restraining order or an injunction on the same day that it filed a federal lawsuit against the NFL.

“Don Ohlmeyer was a towering figure in sports and entertainment who had an indelible impact both on NBC and our industry,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “His legacy will live on not only because he is directly responsible for some of the biggest hits in television — ‘Friends,’ ‘ER’ and ‘Will & Grace’ to name a few — but also because he brought NBC to a new level of classy, sophisticated programming of the highest quality which we all still aspire to achieve today.”

Ohlmeyer also created the sports anthology series “SportsWorld” and served as executive producer of NBC coverage of the Super Bowl and the World Series as well as the prime-time series “Games People Play” and the made-for-television Cheap Hockey Jerseys Youth movie “The Golden Moment: An Olympic Love Story.” Ohlmeyer became well-known Cheap Infant Jerseys for expanding the network’s sports coverage and introducing innovative production techniques.

The suit challenges the way the NFL handled the investigation into domestic violence allegations levied against Elliott in July 2016. After an investigation that lasted over a year, Roger Goodell issued Elliott a six-game suspension. Elliott appealed the decision, but arbitrator Harold Henderson upheld the suspension Tuesday.

What does this ruling mean? Simply put, it means that Elliott can play until the court rules on the lawsuit and determines who wins. The NFL will likely try to file another appeal, but the injunction will keep Elliott on the field until the case is complete.

What’s the status of the court case? It’s ongoing. The NFL filed a motion to dismiss on Tuesday, and asked that the lawsuit be moved from Texas to New York. The NFLPA filed a response shortly thereafter and amended it after Elliott’s suspension was upheld.
