Brady to skip hearing: Tom Brady To Skip Hearing

Published: August 19, 2015

Brady to skip hearing: Tom Brady To Skip Hearing, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s reported plans to attend Wednesday’s federal court hearing in New York regarding his four-game suspension have been derailed by a familiar stumbling block: lack of progress in ongoing discussions, USA Today reported Tuesday afternoon.

Brady was in New York on Tuesday for settlement talks ordered by Judge Richard M. Berman, but because there was “no progress,” according to the report, and Brady will not be staying for Wednesday’s proceedings.

USA Today had cited an unidentified person with knowledge of Brady’s plans in originally reporting that he would be at the Wednesday hearing.

Instead, it now appears he will join the Patriots in White Sulphur Springs, W.V., where the team is scheduled to hold joint practices with the Saints on Wednesday and Thursday at the Saints’ camp at The Greenbrier.

Neither Brady nor NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is required by Berman to be at the hearing in New York.

The NFL isn’t commenting on its attendees, so it’s unclear whether Goodell plans to be there. He did attend Tuesday’s talks, ESPN reported.

Berman has suggested that more in-person settlement talks will continue.

Both sides are expected to make oral arguments and potentially call for witness testimony during Wednesday’s proceedings.
