NFL Concussion Suit Arguments To Start In April

A federal judge will hear oral arguments in about two months on requests to throw out lawsuits by thousands of former NFL players regarding concussions suffered while playing for the league, the Associated Press reports.

U.S. Eastern District Judge Anita Brody in Philadelphia on Tuesday scheduled an April 9 hearing on motions to dismiss filed by the NFL Inc., NFL Properties Inc. and All American Sports Corp.

Players say they’ve developed dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, or are worried about developing them.

They argue it’s not a labor dispute that’s governed by the collective bargaining agreement, but an issue that should be resolved through the courts.

The NFL has argued it didn’t intentionally mislead the players and took steps to protect their health.
