Denver Broncos News: D.J. Williams Appeals Judge's Decision To Dismiss His Lawsuit Against The NFL

D.J. Williams is facing a six-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy, but he has been fighting the ruling. Williams filed a lawsuit against the league claiming that the collector of his drug test sample made "chain-of-custody mistakes," but that suit was thrown out by a judge. Williams appealed that decision on Friday.

Williams filed an appeal Friday to the U.S. District Court, District of Colorado's decision to dismiss his lawsuit against the league. His lawsuit was dismissed Thursday by Judge Christine Arguello.

Absent an appeal, Williams would have to begin the 2012 season by serving a six-game suspension for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy.
