ST. LOUIS, MO (CBSMiami.com) – The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has announced an expedited schedule of hearings in the case Brady vs. NFL, which will determine if the NFL lockout can continue or if it must end.

According to the Court of Appeals, oral arguments will be heard at 10:00 a.m. on Friday June 3, 2011 at the Eagleton Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri.

The appeal comes after U.S. District Judge Susan Nelson ruled that the NFL lockout must be ended.

The NFL was then forced to open for business temporarily last Friday. By the late evening, the Appeals Court granted a temporary stay of Judge Nelson’s order.

Based on the schedule in the case, the NFL will file its opening brief on May 9, 2011. The players will respond to the NFL’s brief by May 20, 2011. The NFL will then file its reply to the players brief on May 26, 2011.

Each side has been allotted 30 minutes to present their argument. The appeal will be heard by Judge Kermit E. Bye, Judge Steven M. Colloton and Judge Duane Benton.]

If the NFL wins the case, the lockout will continue for an indefinite period of time. If the players win, the league season will open immediately, including free agency.

Regardless, going forward for the league and the players will only work if a new CBA can be negotiated. Both sides are waiting until the appeals process is completed before starting true negotiations.
