NFL Players’ Bid to Reopen Revenue Suit Weighed by Judge

A bid by National Football League players to reopen a 2011 settlement of a lawsuit over revenue is being considered by a federal judge following arguments in the case in Minneapolis.

U.S. District Judge David S. Doty is weighing a request by the players to revisit last year’s settlement of claims over the way the league shared revenue with athletes. The players, claiming the league hid a $123 million per-club salary cap for the 2010 season, want $3 billion in damages.
