It's Deflate-gate! The record consists of the district court and 2d Circuit Court opinions from the Tom Brady deflate-gate suspension litigation. 

The questions on cert are:

Whether the Second Circuit erroneously approved an award that exceeded the parties’ collective bargaining agreement’s grant of “appellate” authority over disciplinary action, conflicting with this Court’s opinion in Stolt-Nielsen S.A. v. AnimalFeeds International Corp., 559 U.S. 662 (2010) and violating bedrock principles of labor law?

Whether the Second Circuit failed to find that vacatur is warranted because the arbitrator neglected to address critical provisions of the collective bargaining agreement, as provided by Boise Cascade Corp. v. Paper Allied-Industrial, Chemical & Energy Workers (PACE), 309 F.3d 1075 (8th Cir. 2002)?

Come talk Tom Brady, Roger Goodell, Ray Rice, Greg Hardy and more!
