Tom Brady scored his second biggest victory of 2015 by beating the NFL in court.

The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl on the field, then a week shy of the 2015 NFL season beat the National Football League off the field in the DeflateGate saga.

Tom Brady was suspended initially suspended after the Wells Report alleged he was “generally aware” of delating footballs done by Patriots employees.

Brady was suspended 4 games by the NFL and that ruling was upheld by the Commissioner Roger Goodell after it was appealed by the NFLPA.

The NFL then filed a declaratory judgment in Manhattan federal district court to preempt the National Football League Players Association from filing it’s own case challenging the ruling in labor friendly Minnesota.

Instead, the NFLPA filed anyway and that suit was transferred to the court of Judge Richard M. Berman.

After two mediation dates passed with no apparent settlement in sight, Judge Berman delivered a scathing indictment of the NFL and the role of its lawyers as its commissioner Roger Goodell.

Upon receiving the ruling I took to Twitter to break down the ruling live as I read it. What follows are those tweets.
