Photo Copyright Lewis Gettier for The Equalizer

This week, attorney and writer Kelsey Trainor joins Dan Lauletta and Chelsey Bush to discuss where the United States women’s national team‘s lawsuit stands right now and what’s ahead. Kelsey takes your questions from social media and explains the latest in this ongoing saga between the World Cup champions and the United States Soccer Federation.

She expands upon some of her thoughts from previous EQZ articles she has written, including where things are right now in the discovery process, as well as why the U.S. men’s team’s statement in support of the women likely has some ulterior motives to it.
