Ezekiel Elliott withdrawing appeal of six-game suspension, according to report

Ezekiel Elliott withdrawing appeal of six-game suspension, according to report

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has decided drop all appeals and will serve his six-game suspension.

However, Elliott's decision to drop his suspension isn't necessarily an admission of his guilt, as the National Football League not-so-subtly hints with its response. This put his suspension on hold until the injunction reached the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on October 12.

Just five days later - during the Cowboys' bye week - a U.S. District judge in the Southern District of NY granted Elliott a temporary restraining order.

"In consultation with the NFLPA and his lawyers, and after careful deliberation and review of the recent Second Circuit decisions, Mr. Elliott has chose to forego any further appeals and will serve the remaining suspension".

The final legal volley took place in the 2nd Circuit court in NY, where a brief administrative stay allowed Elliott to stay on the field for the Cowboys' Week 9 game before a three-judge panel in the same court denied him the injunctive relief he needed to continue playing.

This information comes via Elliott's agents, Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano, as reported by NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Samsung denied Supreme Court appeal for slide-to-unlock patent case
An appeals panel overturned that verdict, but the full appellate panel reinstated the award in October 2016 by a vote of 8-3. The order of a lower court that Samsung pay Apple $119.6 million in damages for multiple infringements therefore stands.

Elliott's withdrawal of his appeal ends a sage that began July 2016, when his then-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson accused the player of five instances of domestic violence during a six-day period in Columbus, Ohio (Elliott attended college at Ohio State University).

"This decision is in no way an admission of any wrongdoing, and Mr. Elliott is pleased that the legal fight mounted by he and his team resulted in disclosing many hidden truths regarding this matter as well [as] publicly exposing the NFL's mismanagement of its disciplinary process", the statement says.

Now it is confirmed Elliott will miss the next five games after sitting out the team's 27-7 loss to Atlanta in Week 10.

That court granted Elliott an injunction, denied the NFL's request for a stay and the case moved to the 5th Circuit court in New Orleans.

After a three month legal battle with the league, Ezekiel Elliott has officially thrown in the towel. Elliott was never arrested, but on three separate occasions a federal court ruled that the NFL's suspension was warranted.
