Concussion Settlement Ratified By Owners
Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On October 9, 2013 @ 11:44 AM In News and Rumors,NFL | No Comments
The process now hinges on Judge Anita Brody granting preliminary approval to the deal, which has expanded from more than 4,500 former players to cover all “retired” NFL players as of the date her approval is given.
The hearing, we’re told, has been set for October 28. If approval is granted, formal notice of the settlement will be sent to all retired players, giving them 90 days to “opt out” of the deal, if they so choose. Eventually, a formal “fairness hearing” will be held, with any retired players who don’t opt out having a chance to challenge the settlement.
