NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Instructed to Testify in Ray Rice Hearing

Goodell Told to Testify in Ray Rice Appeal

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has been told to testify in Ray Rice’s appeal of his indefinite suspension, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones, the neutral arbiter selected to hear the appeal, informed the parties of her decision Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the appeal have not been made public. It was uncertain whether Goodell will actually testify. He said this month he would leave the decision to Judge Jones.

“We will continue to respect Judge Jones’ confidentiality order regarding this proceeding,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email.
