The ruling is in for Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots as the federal judge in the case has come to a decision on "Deflategate".

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has the story:

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has gotten his wish -- a federal judge has nullified the NFL's four-game suspension. That means he is cleared to suit up for his team's season opener next week.

The surprise ruling by U.S. District judge Richard Berman came after more than one month of failed settlement talks between the NFL and its players' union.

Many legal experts believed the judge was merely pressuring the sides to settle when he criticized the NFL's handling of the case at two hearings in August.

The judge came out forcefully in Brady's favor, maligning the NFL for its handling of the scandal that erupted after the AFC championship game in January, when officials discovered during the first half that Brady used under-inflated footballs.

New England beat the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 then won the Super Bowl two weeks later.
