In his role as a hearing officer for the National Football League, partner Bob Wallace received national media attention last week when he ruled on a player discipline case brought against Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.
Sherman had appealed a four-game suspension levied against him on charges he violated the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. He claimed errors in the chain of custody of his drug test sample. In a Dec. 27 ruling, Wallace reversed Sherman’s discipline action. Wallace, former general counsel and executive vice president of the St. Louis Rams, is chair of Thompson Coburn's Sports Law Group.
