Number Of Plaintiffs Means Restricted Access For Concussion Hearings

People are getting in position in Philadelphia this morning for today’s hearing on the NFL concussions litigation. There are, in fact, sheets posted around the courthouse listing the people who can get into the actual courtroom on the 7th floor for today’s hearing.

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.
