Last week, U.S. House Committee on Oversight & Reform chairperson Carolyn Maloney said that she would subpoena Commanders owner Daniel Snyder to testify at a deposition this week.
Snyder, according to a Committee spokesperson, has refused to accept service of the subpoena.
In a new statement, a spokesperson for Snyder responded and said that the owner’s attorney is currently out of the country, which is why Snyder didn’t attend the hearing.
“Mr. Snyder has not refused to appear for a deposition,” the statement reads. “The Committee offered only on date – June 30 – and Mr. Snyder’s attorney is out of the country and unavailable on that date. Mr. Snyder’s lawyer has provided alternative dates to the Committee and looks forward to finding a path forward for Mr. Snyder’s further cooperation and to address remaining due process concerns.”
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testified before the Oversight panel in the hearing last week, saying that the Commanders previously had an “unacceptable” work environment but that changes have been implemented in recent years.
“To be clear — the workplace at the Commanders today bears no resemblance to the workplace that has been described to this committee,” he said.
The NFL fined Snyder and the Commanders $10 million in 2021 for the violations, with Snyder being removed from day-to-day control of the team as well.
