Gary Ostrow attorney Fort Lauderdale - Ricky Faces Big Fine

Miami Herald May 15, 2004 Source: Running back Ricky Williams has appealed a second positive test for marijuana and is awaiting an arbitrator's decision that could bring a $650,000 penalty. By Jason Cole jcole@herald.com Dolphins running back Ricky Williams is appealing a second violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy -- for alleged marijuana use -- and could be fined $650,000, according to a soruce with knowledge of the situation. Williams tested positive for marijuana use for the second time since joining the Dolphins in March 2002, the source said. The second positive test came late last season. "I don't want to comment on this -- I'll deal with this on tuesday, " Williams said when reached on his cellphone. Williams will attend the Dolphins' second quarterback school of the offeseason Tuesday through Thursday at the team's practice facility in Davie. He is allowed to participate in team activities even if he is fined. Fort Lauderdale attorney Gary Ostrow, who is representing Williams, could not be reached for comment. Like Willimas, Anderson appealed based on the fact he barely was above the NFL limit. Anderson attorney even argued that the NFL's threshold was lower than the one in Colorado, meaning Anderson wouldn't have been subject to penatly from that state. Even so, Andersn's appeal was denied and he served the four- game suspension. The Dolphins had no comment on the report. "We can't comment on any player because of the confidential nature of the prgram, unless league announces a suspension," team spokesman Harvey Greene said. According to the source close to the situation, Williams told Dolphins executive vice president Wiedmeier about the possible violation of the league policy. Wiedmeier could not be reached for comment.  (Dec 26, 2012 | post #1)

Arbitrator to rule on Williams' case ...reported that documents have been filed by Ostrow on Williams' behalf. The post reported that Williams barely broke the threshold for what is considered a positive result by the NFL. Williams scored a 15 on the league's testing scale - the NFL's lowest posiitve score, the source said. Another sample from Williams the same day came back at 14, which is permissible -- unless the previous test was positive. Verdit Due Soon Because of that, the source told the Herald, Williams and Ostrow are confident Williams could escape the fine and a second vilation of the league's policy. Ostrow filed the final paperwork on the appeal Thursday, and Williams is expected to hear a verdict within a week. The appeal is decided by an independent arbitrator, the source said. In addition to escaping the fine, Williams would also be out of the NFL drug testing program completely because he would be considered clean for two years. Williams was in New York on April 16 with Gary Ostrow to discuss the fine with the NFL. He was given the option of paying the fine at the time and getting out of the program., but he decided to continue to appeal. Williams was asked in April by the Herald about a possible violation of the NFL substrance abuse policy but denied there was any problem with the league. "There's nothing to it. The rumor is not true," Williams said at the time. http://www.topix.c om/member/profile/ garyostrow  (Dec 19, 2012 | post #1)
