NEW YORK– A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game “Deflategate” suspension imposed by the NFL.

The appeals court is overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union.

The decision may end the legal debate over the scandal that led to months of football fans arguing over air pressure in footballs and the reputation of one of the league’s top teams.
