In re: NFL Players Concussion Injury Litig. — class action — affirmance — Ambro
The Third Circuit today affirmed approval of a $1 billion settlement in a suit brought by former pro football players against the NFL for failure to inform of risks, and protect them from injuries, arising from concussions. The court rejected objections to both class certification and the settlement terms.
Joining Ambro were Hardiman and Nygaard. The superstar-studded cast of arguing counsel were Samuel Issacharoff and Paul Clement for appellees, and Howard Bashman, Deepak Gupta, Charles Becker, Cullin O’Brien, and Steven Molo for the appellant objectors. Audio of the almost-two-hour-long argument is here.
