Kaepernick Case Headed To Trial

PHILADELPHIA -- Colin Kaepernick said the NFL and its team owners are colluding to keep him from being signed following his decision to kneel during the National Anthem to protest police brutality. 

The ruling means lawyers on both sides can now question league officials, owners, and others in a trial-like format. 

Such a hearing could happen  by the end of the year, although it's possible Kaepernick's case could be settled. 

The NFL declined to comment on the ruling.
