Panthers | Jeffers Appealing Judge’s Ruling, Wants Case Heard In Court
The Charlotte Observer reports former NFL WR Patrick Jeffers is appealing a judge's ruling in an attempt to have his case against the Carolina Panthers heard in court, as opposed to the NFL's grievance and arbitration system. Court papers filed by Jeffers' attorneys said the arbitration method provided by the NFL collective bargaining agreement does not allow them to acquire discovery documents, depositions and other evidence necessary to prepare their case. Jeffers' suit alleges that former Panthers orthopedist Dr. Donald D'Alessandro performed five unauthorized surgical procedures on Jeffers' knees during an August 2000 surgery that led to the end of his NFL career.
