MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — NFL owners and players and their legal counsel have returned to court for another round of mediation.

Commissioner Roger Goodell arrived Tuesday morning with other league leaders, and other owners entered the courthouse in separate small groups. Linebacker Mike Vrabel showed up shortly before attorneys for the players.

This is the sixth day of talks with U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan.

After a series of stinging rebukes in court, the NFL has a significant, favorable ruling in hand. The same three-judge panel that sided with the league to keep the lockout in place will hear arguments next month on the legality of the NFL's first work stoppage in nearly 24 years. The hearing at the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is June 3 in St. Louis.
