Adrian Peterson petition to void suspension set for Feb. 6
The NFL Players Association has filed a petition to have Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's suspension overturned in federal court next month.
U.S. District Judge David Doty will hear the case Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. in Minneapolis.
The NFL suspended Peterson without pay for the last six games of the 2014 season through at least April 15 for the child-abuse case he was involved in where he plead guilty to a misdemeanor.
Peterson's appeal was denied by a league-appointed arbitrator. Immediately after the arbitration decision was announced, the NFLPA and Peterson filed their lawsuit Dec. 15 asking the court to dismiss the ruling.
