Judge denies D.J. Williams

DENVER -- A federal judge has dismissed a complaint filed against the NFL by Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams, who was seeking to overturn his drug suspension.

Attorney Peter Ginsberg said Thursday that Williams would appeal the decision.

Williams had sued the NFL to overturn a pending six-game drug suspension. He contended the league violated protocol in collecting urine samples.

Williams faces a trial on a drunken-driving charge in August. He was arrested in Denver on Nov. 12, 2010, when he was spotted driving his car without headlights. He was cited with DUI and taken to a detox facility.
