NFL Lawyer Denies Lying To Judges During Tom Brady Suspension Appeal

by

It seemed NFL lawyer Paul Clement wasn’t entirely truthful earlier this month while stating his case to three judges during the league’s appeal of Tom Brady’s overturned suspension.

Clement finds those claims “wholly unfounded.”

Clement responded to a letter written to the three judges — Robert Katzmann, Denny Chin and Barrington Parker Jr. — by New York Law School professor Robert Blecker. Blecker pointed out four “material misstatements of fact that could mislead this Court in its deliberation”: Clement implied New England Patriots locker room attendant Jim McNally referred to himself as the deflator” multiple times, said Brady’s counsel was present for many of the interviews, argued all of the Indianapolis Colts’ footballs were above the legal PSI requirement and said Brady only would admit to talking to Patriots equipment staffer John Jastresmski about the upcoming Super Bowl, not Deflategate.

NESN.com, CBS Boston, the Washington Post and Sports Illustrated also pointed out some of these claims.

Here is Clement’s letter vehemently denying any “false statements.”
