Judge Knocks Out Settlement

Nflconcussion

A U.S. District Court judge has denied initial approval of the $760 million concussion settlement between many former football players and the NFL.

Citing concerns about the sufficiency of the funds, Judge Anita Brody has placed a demand on attorneys to come up with more substantive documentation.  She was not satisfied that the settlement would cover the medical expenses of the 4,500 players involved.

Special thanks to David S. Luber (Florida Probate Attorney) for bringing this article to my attention.
