According to the filing, Kia Wright Roberts, the NFL's director of investigations, testified Tuesday that she was the only National Football League employee who interviewed the running back's accuser, Tiffany Thompson, during the probe and that she would not have recommended discipline for Elliott based on her disoveries.
Elliott was suspended six games by the league for a violation of the personal conduct policy, and he filed an appeal. While Elliott did not face criminal charges, the NFL's investigation concluded that "there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that [Elliott] engaged in physical violence against Ms. [Tiffany] Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016", according to a statement from the NFL.
When NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conducted a meeting to discuss discipline for Elliott, it included Lisa Friel, the senior vice president for investigations, Jeff Pash, executive vice president and general counsel and Adolpho Birch, senior vice president of labor policy and government affairs, among others. Friel's testimony corroborated that of Roberts, and the part of that testimony with which the NFLPA took issue was that Goodell imposed the six-game suspension without Roberts' input with regard to appropriate discipline.
