Saints LB Jonathan Vilma's Lawsuit Against Roger Goodell Dismissed
U.S. District Court Judge Helen Berrigan dismissed Jonathan Vilma's defamation lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed.
Vilma's lawyer, Peter Ginsberg, told NFL.com's Albert Breer in December, that the player wanted to continue the lawsuit since his reputation was damaged by being issued a suspension by Goodell for being involved in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
The New Orleans Saints linebacker chose to pursue the lawsuit after his season-long suspension was vacated by former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue last month. He originally filed the lawsuit against Goodell in May.
