Brain Injury Association of America Submits Amicus Brief Today to United States Supreme Court To Reject NFL Concussion Settlement

I am pleased that the amicus brief that Shana De Caro and I wrote was submitted today on behalf of the Brain Injury Association of America to the United States Supreme Court in support of the Petition for a Writ of Certiorari to reject the NFL class action concussion settlement.

"This action, commenced for the multi-faceted repercussions of brain damage as a result of longstanding NFL misconduct, fails to compensate the majority of players who have suffered the devastating and enduring effects of traumatic brain injury.   The court has an obligation to protect the entire class based upon well-researched, recognized, and cogent medical science. Any settlement that does not, should be rejected as unfair and contrary to the best interests of the majority of class members." BIAA Supreme Court Amicus Brief Cover Page
