Appeals court grants NFL stay

MINNEAPOLIS -- The NFL has won another round in the court fight with its players.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday decided that the league&39;s lockout of players should stay in place until a full appeal is heard on whether it is legal. The 2-1 decision mirrored the panel&39;s earlier decision granting a temporary stay -- including a lengthy dissent from the same judge.

The appellate court said it believed the NFL has proven it "likely will suffer some degree of irreparable harm without a stay."

A June 3 hearing is scheduled to hear arguments on the legality of the lockout.
