By JON KRAWCZYNSKI

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The federal judge overseeing the NFL players' request to lift a lockout by the owners said it will take "a couple of weeks" to rule.

U.S. District Court Judge Susan Richard Nelson, however, urged both sides to get back to the bargaining table.

Nelson heard arguments from lawyers for the players and NFL owners Wednesday in St. Paul.

The players say their careers are being irreparably harmed by the lockout. The owners say Nelson doesn't have the jurisdiction to issue an injunction while their is a complaint before the National Labor Relations Board.

1. I wonder if the Government shuts down, is this deemed necessary...
or does the (federal) judge and court reporter get told to stay home, along with other federal employees involved in this court case.
