Panthers | Police and Courts: Jeffers
Charles Chandler, reports for the Charlotte Observer, former Carolina Panthers WR Patrick Jeffers and his attorneys are turning to the North Carolina Supreme Court in an effort to get their case against the Panthers' former team doctor to court. They asked the Supreme Court to review the N.C. Court of Appeals decision last month to dismiss an appeal by Jeffers, saying the matter has "significant public interest." A lower court ruled Jeffers had to arbitrate the part of the case that pertains to the team, according to the grievance provisions of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement (CBA). Jeffers' petition to the state Supreme Court said the player's complaints against the Panthers are not covered by the CBA.
