District Court Judge Amos Mazzant III issued the preliminary injunction last month after agreeing with the NFLPA that Elliott didn't receive a fair suspension appeal hearing from Goodell-appointed arbitrator Harold Henderson.
Elliott, whose struggles on the field have contributed to Dallas's rocky 2-3 start to the season, received the suspension, which is the baseline punishment for a first-time domestic violence offender, after a yearlong investigation into allegations made against Elliott in July 2016.
The NFL previously prevailed at the appellate level in cases involving Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady in which the NFLPA challenged disciplinary measures and scored victories at the district court level.
But due to the collective bargaining agreement, the National Football League believes it doesn't need a conviction to punish a player. No decision was made, but both sides had agreed to an expedited decision.
The circuit court's ruling does not mean Elliott's fight is over.
Elliott was originally suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in August after the league concluded he had several physical confrontations last summer with his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson.
Elliott was not present at that hearing.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans granted the league's emergency request and ordered the district court in Texas to dismiss Elliott's case. "So this is not over yet, particularly with the bye week, that Elliott will not serve the suspension".
Previous NFL cases in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY are a mixed bag.
The league won the "Deflategate" decision in the NY court, leading to New England quarterback Tom Brady serving his four-game suspension a year after it was originally imposed.
