Former Raiders Coach Jon Gruden Wins Two Early Battles In His Legal Case Against NFL

Gruden’s lawsuit will remain in court as motions to dismiss it and to move it to arbitration were denied

USA Today


Former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden scored a couple of victories in a Nevada court Wednesday, as Judge Nancy Allf denied the NFL‘s motions to dismiss his lawsuit against the league, and to force the issue into arbitration, per Front Office Sports. The Super Bowl winning head coach alleges that the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell created “a malicious and orchestrated campaign” to leak inappropriate emails sent by him between 2010 and 2018.

The NFL issued a statement to FOS following the court’s ruling Wednesday, stating that neither the league nor Goodell leaked Gruden’s emails to the media.



Gruden resigned from his position as head coach of the Raiders in October after several damning emails were reported by media. In emails that were recovered during the league’s investigation into the Washington Football Team, the Wall Street Journal reported that Gruden used a racial trope to criticize NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith in 2011. Just days later, The New York Times reported other emails contained homophobic, misogynistic and sexist insults — ultimately forcing Gruden’s resignation.
