Judge Dismisses Former NFLers' Licensing Lawsuit Against NFLPA
Published May 24, 2012
“Statements by NFLPA employees that the organization represents all retired NFL Players for licensing purposes do not, as Plaintiffs suggest, show that … any of the other Plaintiffs, indicated a desire for the NFLPA to act on their behalf,” Klausner ruled. The NFLPA leadership has said they speak for retired players, and the retirees here tried to use that as evidence the union had a fiduciary duty to market them and failed to do so. The retirees are Bernie Parrish, Bob Grant, Walter Roberts, Clinton Jones, and Marvin Cobb.
