The NFL released a letter to a judge Thursday ahead of an initial hearing in a discrimination case brought by three Black coaches who allege racist hiring practices.

In the letter, the league says it will ask the judge either to dismiss the claims by Brian Flores, Steve Wilks and Ray Horton because they lack legal merit, or force the matter into arbitration. The letter was prepared by lawyers for the coaches and the NFL to notify the judge of their positions.

The coaches’ lawyers said they’ll oppose the NFL’s plans to force arbitration or dismiss the case.
