John W. Rickert,
(“Rickert”), a registered and Certified Contract Advisor since2003, hereby filed a Complaint and Demand for Relief from Respondent,
Audie A. Attar
,(“Attar”), also a Certified Contract Advisor. The Grievance was received by Attar and the NFLPA, on or about October 3, 2011.The Grievance was based upon the following facts:1. On or about the months of February, March, and April of 2011, Attar interferedwith the contractual relationship with Rickert and players: Matt Ware of theArizona Cardinals, Aaron Berry of the Detroit Lions, and Roberto Wallace of theMiami Dolphins. As a result the 3 above mentioned players were provided anemail address by Attar and enticed to terminate their Standard RepresentationAgreements with Rickert.2.On or about the months of February 2011 to the present, Attar has attempted toencourage Chris Ogbannaya of the Cleveland Browns and Cam Morrah of theSeattle Seahawks to terminate their respective Standard Representation Agreementswith Rickert as well.3.At some point in the year 2011, Audie Attar signed Pierre Allen to a StandardRepresentation Agreement and went on to execute a contract on Allen’s behalf withthe Seattle Seahawks. This is a clear violation of the restrictive covenant andagreement not to compete pursuant to the agreement executed with Rickert.4.On or about September 30, 2011, Attar served Rickert with a notice of claim inUnited States District Court for a breach of contract between 2 certified contractadvisors. The agreement clearly states that the NFLPA shall have original jurisdiction over any and all disputes regarding said agreement. Therefore, Attar has failed to recognize the jurisdiction and authority of the NFLPA, which is blatantviolation for any certified contract advisor.
