Breaking: We Have A New Tom Brady Sketch (But No Settlement)
Today's court proceedings have concluded in the Tom Brady Deflategate case, and there is no settlement -- which means that Judge Richard Berman will have to decide if Brady's used car lot indeed has a mile of cars.
No wait, that's the plot from the Kurt Russell movie Used Cars, which is just as entertaining and preposterous. Actually, Berman must make a ruling on Brady's suspension by the NFL -- either reduce it, vacate it, or rule in favor of the league and let it be. That ruling will come either Tuesday or Wednesday, said Berman.
But more importantly, we await new courtroom sketches by artist Jane Rosenberg. (UPDATE: It has landed. See above). She's been practicing, as seen below. I suppose it was necessary for the case to take this long so that she could get it right.

"I have no qualms about everybody's dedication," Berman said during the conference in Manhattan.
Giants co-owner John Mara, who was summoned to court Monday in an attempt to try to settle the case, left the courtroom prior to Berman's announcement and told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that "there's not going to be a settlement, as far as I know."
If Berman rules for the NFL, Brady will likely ask for a stay while his team appeals, meaning that he could be eligible to play in Week 1 (vs. the Steelers). And the appeals process could go on for weeks, months, decades, and we may never see the end of this.
