The seemingly endless saga revolving around New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his patronization of a spa with allegedly sketchy intentions in South Florida has taken yet another strange turn.

Despite the existence of a video that could be essential to the framework of a case, a court judge has disallowed video evidence said to place Kraft at the spa in question from being used at trial.

The judge claims that the video was obtained illegally by police, which makes it impermissible in court. While the case will still proceed and Kraft could still face charges, this is a massive win for the Pats owner and his legal team.

Evidence that was obtained at a traffic stop related to the Kraft case was also suppressed due to the questionable methods police used to obtain it.

This is still an ongoing legal matter, and the NFL could step in and still punish Kraft under its personal conduct policy in light of the PR nightmare that's been spawned here. However, the Kraft team has to be rejoicing that this potentially damning, lewd video evidence will not play any role in the legal portion of this melodrama.
