April 15 Court Date Scheduled For NFLPA Settlement Assessment
Published March 24, 2009
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has scheduled an April 15 settlement assessment conference between the NFLPA and a class of 2,056 retired players that last year won a $28.1M judgment against the union for failing to properly market them. The union appealed that verdict earlier this year. The Ninth Circuit employs professional mediators, and the April conference is scheduled to determine if the appeal can be mediated.
