The federal court system is often a forum for a variety of issues that can affect a large number of people. While it might not affect a large number of people, a recent case heard by U.S. District Judge David Doty might interest some of our Oregon readers who are National Football League fans.

His suspension was based on new guidelines governing the league's personal conduct policy. The incident for which Peterson was suspended occurred prior to the implementation of that enhanced penalty clause.
