Arbitrator sends Kaepernick's NFL grievance to trial

Arbitrator sends Kaepernick's NFL grievance to trial

Earlier this year, the National Football League requested a summary judgment in the case, which basically meant that Kaepernick's legal team had to prove that there was enough evidence for things to move forward.

Kaepernick first sat during the anthem two years ago, and later chose to kneel as a way to protest police brutality and systemic racial inequality against minorities, spurring a series of similar protests from a handful of players across the league that continue today.

In moving forward with his grievance filed against the NFL, Colin Kaepernick's legal team will reportedly seek federal subpoenas for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to testify. They were refused Thursday based on Kaepernick's ability to produce enough evidence to support his claim to continue his complaint.

Mark Geragos, Kaepernick's attorney, made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday.

Argentina's peso hits record low against USA dollar
It finished down 13.12 percent at a record closing low of 39.25 pesos per us dollar , after touching 42 pesos earlier in the day. Argentina has $24.9 billion in peso- and foreign currency-denominated debt payments due next year, according to official data.

The statement, which was signed by Stephen Burbank, is seen as a huge blow to the NFL.

The NFL declined to comment on the decision, Rapoport reported.

Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League for collusion in October 2017 after he was not picked up by another team after opting out of his 49ers contract in March of the same year. The protests have grown into one of the most polarizing issues in sports, with President Trump loudly urging the league to suspend or fire players who demonstrate in such a manner.

A similar grievance is still pending by unsigned safety Eric Reid, who played with Kaepernick in San Francisco and joined in the protests. Trump has been very vocal both on Twitter and during his rallies that every NFL player should stand during the national anthem and those that do not should be fired.
