NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The federal court case over the infamous no-call from the NFC Championship game is now in a judge’s hands.

Federal Judge Susie Morgan has not ruled on the matter. She has asked the attorneys for two Saints season tickets holders to make additional court filings by Tuesday (Jan. 29).

Attorneys are trying to get NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to conduct an investigation into the no call, claiming the season ticket holders suffered damages.

Attorneys for the NFL argued that Goodell was powerless to force the referee to throw a penalty flag.

“There’s nothing really to report,” said NFL attorney Glad Jones. “…Nope, [the judge] hasn’t done anything, hasn’t done anything. The court has not ruled yet,”

“The court is taking it under advisement," said plaintiffs’ attorney Frank D’Amico. “She has asked us to file some additional pleadings, so we don’t want to comment, but all we can say is we are still fighting hard to try to get Commissioner Goodell to step up and do the right thing.”

There is no word yet on if the judge will rule before the Super Bowl.
