NFL Denies Waiver To Firm Seeking To Rep Players In Antitrust Suit
Published April 22, 2011
Meanwhile, the NFLPA is seeking damages in the so-called lockout insurance case from the NFL that could approach and possibly exceed $1B, the league disclosed in legal papers yesterday. The NFL wrote the NFLPA is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in compensatory damages, plus punitive damages; the NFLPA in its brief said it would seek punitive damages of three times the compensatory amount. Full financial numbers in documents from both sides have been redacted. The NFL contended in its brief that the NFLPA deserves no damages because it did not ask for them previously and because the union decertified.
