Albany Empire players and coaches are planning to file a class action lawsuit against team owner and former NFL player Antonio Brown after paychecks were removed from their bank accounts.
The National Arena League terminated membership of the Empire on June 15, six days after they played their last game against the Orlando Predators. Brown allegedly owes the NAL $21,000 in unpaid assessment fees, leading to his team’s midseason dismissal.
Players and coaches were originally paid for the Orlando game, but noticed a few days later that their paychecks had been deducted from their bank accounts. Players are owed $500 and up for their final game, Empire head coach Moe Leggett told the Albany Times Union.
