Default Judge gives Jets fan time to amend Patriots suit

NEWARK, N.J. (AP)—A federal judge has given a New York Jets season-ticket holder more time to amend a lawsuit that seeks millions from the New England Patriots and coach Bill Belichick for “deceiving customers” by videotaping opponents’ signals.

The lawsuit by Carl J. Mayer, filed in September, was due to be dismissed June 30 because of a lack of activity.

Mayer and his co-counsel, Bruce I. Afran, this week asked U.S. District Judge Garrett E. Brown Jr. for more time because Afran has been ill and because of unspecified “revelations” developed by an investigation into the taping launched by U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania after the lawsuit was filed.

They asked permission to amend the lawsuit and serve notice on the defendants by Aug. 30.

Garrett, who sits in Trenton, approved the request in a handwritten note dated Monday at the bottom of Mayer’s letter.

A message seeking comment from a Patriots spokesman was not immediately returned Thursday.

Mayer’s lawsuit maintained that the Patriots’ secret videotaping violated the contractual “expectations and rights” of Jets ticket holders “to observe an honest match played in compliance with all laws and regulations.” It sought class-action status.

But Mayer and Afran, who have collaborated in legal actions against New Jersey politicians, failed to serve the defendants with copies of the complaint.

As a result, the court clerk advised Mayer in early June that the lawsuit would be dismissed June 30 unless he gives a federal judge a reason it should continue. The clerk’s notice cited a court rule allowing dismissal if no proceeding had occurred for 120 days.

Until Mayer’s recent letter, no public action had been taken for nearly nine months.

...and for Daryl Talley literally tackling an Oiler receiver in overtime, which gift-wrapped an interception for whoever picked that pass off. No call, though.

Yep, still mad about that.

Yep, I want to sue Bud Adams as well. I was at the Oilers and Jets game when Buddy Ryan succer punched Gilbride. I went to watch a game, not a fist fight between coaches.

I believe that was a violation of Texas DTPA laws and I'm entitled to restitution and I want it NOW!!!!!
