New York’s attorney general has started an antitrust investigation into the NFL lockout, requesting information from both the league and the players’ association about the economic impact of pro football’s labor impasse according to the Associated Press.
Assistant Attorney General Richard Schwartz says in a letter this week to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that the lockout will “inflict significant economic injuries statewide,” starting with losses of upstate training camps, and his office is obliged to investigate whether it is lawful.
Schwartz says the AG’s office is “deeply troubled” by the possible implications of the league’s conduct under New York’s antitrust law.
An NFL spokesman said the league is examining the letter.
