Goodell, Brady due in court for 'Deflategate' case
NEW YORK- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell are expected in court after failing to settle the "Deflategate" scandal.
Both sides are to appear before a federal court judge in Manhattan Monday for a status conference.
The dispute centers on the legality of the NFL's four-game suspension of Brady after Goodell concluded he conspired with Patriots ball handlers to deflate footballs at January's AFC championship game victory.
The NFL Players Association has asked the judge to void the suspension.
Federal Judge Richard Berman has urged both sides to agree to a deal. He warned the NFL earlier this month he can erase Brady's suspension if it fails to negotiate a deal.
Berman has said he hopes to decide the case by Sept. 4 if there's no settlement.
