Deshaun Watson's disciplinary hearing over after three days, no timetable for ruling

Deshaun Watson’s hearing prior to the NFL and NFL Players Association’s collectively selected disciplinary officer, Sue L. Robinson, has actually ended up after 3 days, a source informed ESPN’s Dan Graziano on Thursday.

Watson’s hearing started Tuesday early morning and ended Thursday night.

Watson has actually been implicated in civil claims by 25 females of actions varying from sexual attack to improper habits throughout massage sessions. The NFL has actually been promoting a suspension of a minimum of a year, according to Graziano, who reported that both sides participated in numerous efforts to reach a settlement while the hearing was still occurring, however stay not able to concur.

According to Graziano, Robinson requested for post-hearing briefs, which will be due the week of July 11.

There is no set timeline for Robinson’s choice. A source informed Graziano that Robinson is anticipated “to take her time.”

If either the union or league appeals the choice, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or his designee “will issue a written decision that will constitute full, final and complete disposition of the dispute,” per terms of Article 46 in the collective bargaining agreement.

One of the 25 lawsuits was dropped after the judge ruled the petition had to be amended with the plaintiff’s name. Watson and 20 of the other plaintiffs agreed to settle their lawsuits last week.

On Monday, one of the four active civil suits was amended to name the Houston Texans as a defendant. That day, attorney Tony Buzbee, who at one time represented all 25 women, said in a statement that “the frustrating proof gathered showing that the Houston Texans made it possible for Watson’s habits is exceptionally damning.”

Two grand juries in Texas decreased to pursue criminal charges versus Watson previously this year. Watson has actually preserved his innocence.

The Texans traded Watson to the Browns in March after the very first grand jury revealed it would not prosecute him.
