Quote:
About a dozen appeals on behalf of as many as 90 former players were expected to be filed by Monday’s deadline. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia could hear arguments on the issues this fall.

Some challenge the exclusion of future cases of CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the brain decay that many link to football concussions. Others are concerned the settlement awards players with neurocognitive symptoms, such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, but not those with behavioural and mood disorders that some link to CTE and concussions.
The only ones winning are the lawyers.

SCOTUS rejects challenges to settlement (meaning things are "done" legally).

First two NFL concussion claims combine for $9 million

$5m + $4m. One ALA diagnosis. Neither player identified.
