Browns | Jurevicius allowed to pursue lawsuit against team
Pat Galbincea, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports a federal judge ruled Wednesday, March 31, that former WR Joe Jurevicius can proceed with his claims against the Browns in state court for incurring a staph infection at their training facility two years ago. U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver Jr. said the Browns' contention that the case should be dismissed outright because of an NFL collective bargaining agreement was not valid. Oliver ruled that eight of Jurevicius' claims against the Browns arose from state law and not the league's collective bargaining agreement.
