The NFL's Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit over Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension is temporarily on hold.
The NFL suspended Elliott on Aug. 11 following allegations that he had abused his ex, Tiffany Thompson, in July 2016.
The NFL Players Association appealed Elliott's suspension on Aug. 15. An arbitrator denied the appeal on Sept. 5, concluding the NFL followed its disciplinary policy "closely, step by step," court papers state.
The League's lawyers had filed a complaint against the NFL Players Association in Manhattan Federal Court on Sept. 5 to enforce the arbitrator's ruling.
But before the NFL brought this New York lawsuit, Elliott had already tried fighting his suspension in a Texas court.
