     United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee (Givens v. Tennessee Football, Inc., 3:2009cv00888)

On February 11, 2010, Judge Campbell dismissed a lawsuit by former Tennessee Titans football player David Givens over allegations that his former team broke his contract over withholding medical information from an injury he suffered during the 2006 season. The judge ruled that Givens must seek arbitration which is set in the current collective bargaining agreement between the National Football League and the National Football League Players Association. The judge stressed in his ruling that past rulings in the Supreme Court of the United States required that the arbitration process must be used in breach of contract disputes.[4]
