NFL wins ruling in drug test caseThe National Football League (NFL) has won in Minnesota case that threatened to dilute its league wide drug testing policy. This means that Kevin Williams and Pat Williams who violated policy on performance enhancing drugs of NFL will have to serve a four game suspension in the 2010 season.

Hennepin County Judge Gary Larson ruled that the NFL players were not harmed by the failure of NFL to provide notice and it wasn’t enough to block the suspensions.

The N.F.L. originally suspended Kevin Williams and Pat Williams for four games in 2008 after they tested positive for a banned diuretic (bumetanide), which can be used to mask steroids.
