NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said the league reviewed all available law enforcement and court records, sworn testimony in prior proceedings in addition to interviewing Hurney and members of the Panthers. “We also requested an interview with Mr. Hurney's former wife, which was declined through her attorney,'' McCarthy said. “Our investigation identified no evidence to support an allegation of domestic violence or similar conduct that would constitute a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.''

Statement from Marty Hurney's attorney, Kathleen Lucchesi, after the NFL ruled there was no evidence that the Panthers interim GM harassed his ex-wife: "It's been a very long two weeks for Marty and his family. In this digital age, it's nearly impossible to overcome suspicion, defend yourself, and clear your name once the court of public opinion gets a hold of a false narrative. The public scrutiny can be devastating and unrelenting. In this case, it was also unnecessary. "Words cannot express how thankful Marty is for the love and unwavering support of his family. He is grateful to the NFL for conducting a thorough investigation. He is also grateful for the continued confidence and support of the Panthers organization. Marty is looking forward to getting back to the work of building a strong and successful Panthers team for the 2018 season."

The NFL's investigation into an allegation by Marty Hurney's ex-wife that she was harassed by the Panthers' interim general manager could come as soon as today, multiple sources told If cleared – and indications are that will be the case – Hurney still is expected to be named the fulltime GM. Hurney's ex-wife withdrew the harassment charge in court after a judge denied her attempt at a restraining order, but the NFL continued with its investigation headed by Lisa Friel. Hurney has been on paid administrative leave.
