Appellate Court Refuses to Hear Further Arguments

Posted on: June 8, 2016 NFL Concussions

Since the Third Circuit Court of Appeals refused to hear further arguments for altering the NFL Concussion Settlement Agreement, the only avenue left for players to challenge the agreement is the Supreme Court. While it is unlikely that the country’s highest court will agree to hear the case, former players certainly have the right to take their challenge as far as they can. However, it should be noted that funds cannot begin to be paid out until all appeals have been exhausted. This means that former players may have to wait even longer to receive money from the Settlement Agreement.
