When the National Football League was faced with an order of the Supreme Court in Riverhead prohibiting it from continuing the mandatory drug testing of one of the league’s leading rushers, Schlosser worked with the NFL’s national counsel that night and, the very next day, successfully obtained an order from the Appellate Division removing the previous order and freeing the NFL to salvage the testing sample and finish the drug evaluation as required by the league’s rules.
While acknowledging that “representing the NFL and assisting it in enforcing its league-wide drug policy was a rush,” Schlosser declined to comment further about the case, citing the sensitive and private issues involved.
