NFL Fight Moves to Courtroom

NFL players and owners haven taken their fight to the courtroom.

Representatives from both sides arrived at a federal courthouse in St. Paul, Minn., this morning. A group of players is asking a judge to issue a preliminary injunction on the lockout the owners imposed after talks on a new collective bargaining agreement broke off three weeks ago.

Several players are in attendance including named plaintiffs Mike Vrabel, Vincent Jackson, Von Miller and Brian Robison. Veterans Tony Richardson and Charlie Batch and retired Hall of Famer Carl Eller are in court as well.

The court appearance is the first round between the NFL and its locked-out players in their legal fight over the future of the $9 billion business -- including the 2011 season.
