Louisiana's Supreme Court has ruled that the NFL can hold off, for now, on providing documents and answering questions in a New Orleans Saints fan's lawsuit.

Attorney Anthony LeMon says the state's highest court issued the stay order while it considers the league's appeal of a lower court judge's ruling allowing his suit against the league to continue.

LeMon says the stay will likely mean the depositions of Goodell and the officials will be put off until October or later if the suit is allowed to proceed.

The lawsuit seeks $75,000 in damages and LeMon has said he intends for any money won to go to former Saints star Steve Gleason's charity to aid people with neuromuscular diseases.
