If Gruden had a legitimate expectation of privacy when he wrote these emails, (like say if he and Allen were communicating from their personal email accounts) AND the person who made the emails public was an NFL employee, the league may have some liability. And if it is found that the leaker was acting under the direction of a league officer ...

But this is all guesswork. I really don't want to go so deep into this as to search out the NFL's terms and conditions of employment, but if the league starts to make privacy claims in response to demands to release all emails, that could get really sticky for them if they either authorized the leak, or were negligent in protecting the emails. 

It was my understanding Gruden et all were using company email.   In most cases these are owned by the company;  I.e.  the employee has no right to privacy.

So only an idiot would use company email for such discussion.    Note that there can also be no right to privacy using social media;  E.g.   each year I have to sign a doc that says there can be consequences for what I post publicly on public industry websites.

Just what I said would happen above:   Gruden has a solid case against the NFL and others for leaking communications they had no right to leak.

 

James this is how you harshly criticized me when I responded to a post directly after someone else posted on another thread.  Now you are doing it.

"Really Cid;   you're as misguided and confused as the person that created this thread if you believe the current inflation surge is the fault of Trump."

And you told me to get over it?     But really if I offended you I apologize,    lets move on.

He's probably too angry to settle at this point, too. This could get really interesting. 

The NFL \ Goodell have already made a settlement offer?        I believe they will and they expected too:    I.e.   the NFL \ Goodell decided from the get-go that  getting Gruden out of the NFL and having to pay him off was the best PR option.

This is similar to when CBS released Don Imus;   CBS lawyers advised them that Imus could sue and would likely win,  but they decided to release him anyhow viewing any payoff as money well spent.

I don't mean to imply an offer has been made but one certainly will be. 

I'm not sure why the NFL needed to worry about PR since no one knew about the emails before the NFL leaked them. And I'm definitely not sure how drawing a suit for slander or whatever the basis is (I haven't read the filing) and paying it off is good PR.

If the leaker is not already named and the NFL knows who it is, their first move should be to name him as a party. Then make an offer to be released from the action.
