Estate Of Late Mike Webster Part Of Latest Lawsuit Against NFL
The estate of Mike Webster has sued the NFL over concussions the late Pro Football HOFer sustained in his career. Webster's is "one of six estates of deceased former players among the 66 plaintiffs in the lawsuit" filed in L.A. Superior Court last month and moved to U.S. District Court in California this week. This is the "largest such lawsuit against the NFL since a federal judge rejected" the proposed $765M settlement in January. The suit accuses the NFL of "not warning players about the long-term dangers posed by head injuries." The league "didn't immediately return a request for comment" (LATIMES.com, 3/21).
