The NFLPA operated as a trade association during the lockout.
Gibson Dunn also recently filed to represent former Tennessee Titans player Bruce Matthews before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Matthews wants to file his workers’ compensation claim under California law rather than Tennessee law.
