MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The NFL and its locked-out players have wrapped up their court-ordered talks and they may not meet again for weeks.

An attorney for the team owners, Jeff Pash, says a federal judge told both sides Wednesday that they probably won’t convene again until May 16 — nearly a month away.

The two sides met for four days at the federal courthouse in Minneapolis with few signs of progress in their labor dispute. The lockout is in its 40th day.

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson is expected to decide soon on the players’ request for an injunction to immediately lift the lockout. It is the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987.
