Nevada Court Rules Jon Gruden Can’t Sue NFL Over Dismissal As Raiders Coach.


Former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has been embroiled in a lawsuit against the NFL since his dismissal in 2021. Gruden accused the league and Commissioner Roger Goodell of directly leaking racist e-mails to force him out as Raiders coach.



The league however, argued that Gruden was ineligible to sue the league due to a clause in his contract as Raiders coach, and a Nevada court ruled in the NFL’s favor calling for arbitration between the sides, via ESPN



A three-judge panel of Nevada’s Supreme Court on Tuesday sided with the NFL against former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden, saying that he was subject to arbitration even as a former employee and thus ineligible to sue the league over his 2021 termination.


Justices Elissa F. Cadish and Kristina Pickering reversed a district court’s order that denied the NFL’s motion to force Gruden’s complaint into its arbitration process. The case was remanded to the lower court with an order to grant the arbitration motion.



The NFL has argued for courts to toss out Gruden’s claim, saying a clause in his contract with the Raiders required him to file his claim through league arbitration.


Gruden attorney Adam Hosmer-Henner argued that arbitration, a process that is controlled by the NFL and where any discovery would not be made public, would be unfair to his client because Gruden is no longer a league employee.


Hosmer-Henner said Gruden would seek a hearing before all seven justices of the Nevada Supreme Court.
