Number Of Plaintiffs Means Restricted Access For Concussion Hearings
April 9, 2013 10:40 AM
Because there are so many plaintiffs firms involved, access is restricted. People who aren’t allowed into the courtroom have to go to an overflow room. The lists have about 100 names, including NFL executives, lawyers, retirees and widows. One lawyer standing next to a list said jokingly that someone should add the name “Pat White” and then cross it out. White was a plaintiff until voluntarily dismissing his claim and signing with the Redskins last week.
