Ezekiel Elliott's defense for exposing woman's breast: 'We had sex later'

Ezekiel Elliott

The lawsuit claims Elliot was not allowed to look at the notes from the interviews of Thompson conducted by the NFL.

"Not only did the underlying facts not support the false allegations made against Mr. Elliott, but the process in which they were gathered and adjudicated [was] fundamentally unfair", the pair said in a written statement.

Those issues are what the NFL Players Association emphasized in making its case for Elliott.

Roberts testified that she informed Lisa Friel, who investigates domestic violence cases for the NFL, but she wasn't allowed to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell or other advisors.

"The conspiracy to hide Roberts's conclusions as the co-lead investigator were especially harmful because she was the only one of the co-lead investigators to interview Thompson - and she did so six times", the suit said.[content-3] In addition to Roberts' testimony, Elliott and the players association point to numerous procedural issues that undermine the essential fairness of the NFL's appeals process.

Elliott denied Thompson's allegations under oath in an appeal hearing that spanned three days. The NFL season kicks off Thursday night, and the Cowboys make their regular-season debut on September 10 on "Sunday Night Football".

September US Jobs Report
The preceding three-month average of jobs added is 184,000, which puts the August number about 15 percent down by comparison. Trump has pledged to add 25 million jobs over the next decade - a goal economists say is unrealistic.

Why file the lawsuit now?

The findings of Roberts' investigation are what had the Cowboys so confident about Elliott's status before his suspension was handed down.

McCarthy said the league was "very confident" in its investigation.

The NFLPA's pre-emptive strike before Henderson makes a decision, in a court they deem should be favorable, lays out the case they will make if Elliott's suspension is not vacated. The NFLPA and Elliott have already filed a suit requesting a restraining order on his suspension. During testimony, it was said that Friel barred Roberts, who was an assistant district attorney in Brooklyn for eight years before being hired by the National Football League in 2015, from the meeting.

The Cowboys running back justified his behavior, saying it was acceptable because they had sex later that day, and again on a later date, TMZ reported Friday. "And I've got a lot to say".

Henderson has heard dozens of appeals, including New Orleans running back Adrian Peterson's in a child abuse case out of Texas when Peterson was with Minnesota. "Hearing for temporary order likely Tuesday after Harold [Henderson] rules", a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.
