Judge Rejects National Football League's Request to Dismiss National Football League as Defendant

A judge this week rejected the National Football League's request to dismiss the league as a defendant in a lawsuit by former Buffalo Jills cheerleaders against the Buffalo Bills and others over wages. State Supreme Court Justice Timothy J. Drury ruled that the NFL's dismissal motion was premature since discovery has not yet been conducted into the league's alleged role in the wage dispute. The lawsuit contends that under a 1995 ruling by the National Labor Relations Board, the Jills are employees, not independent contractors as the Bills maintain, and have to be paid at least the minimum wage. The lawsuit said the NFL furthered the misclassification of the Jills as independent contractors when it approved the 2007 and 2009 broadcast rights contracts between the Bills and the team's former radio broadcaster. The contracts, which included a stamp bearing the signature of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell below the word 'approved', also gave Citadel Broadcasting the exclusive rights to run the Jills and required Citadel to have each member of the cheerleading squad sign independent contractor agreements that the Jills would not be paid for working Bills games. The lawsuit said NFL knew about the 1995 NLRB ruling. The lawsuit accuses the NFL of aiding and abetting the Bills in the allegedly fraudulent scheme to misclassify the Jills as independent contractors and of unjustly enriching itself by its conduct. The suit seeks payment for the Jills' services.
