Fred Dryer Says Plaintiffs In NFL Films Suit Oppose Settlement
Published March 19, 2013
Dan Gustafson, the court-appointed settlement lawyer who spoke at the NFL press conference yesterday unveiling the settlement, said he believed the court would approve the deal despite the original seven’s objections. They want a substantially higher settlement amount, checks sent to individual plaintiffs, and they oppose the agency, Gustafson explained. Their choices are to stay in the settlement process and object, or opt out and pursue new litigation, he said. The Minnesota federal court is expected to rule on the proposed settlement by the end of August.
