On January 2, Judge Anita B. Brody issued an order scheduling a hearing to finally determine the fate of the settlement’s “generally consistent” standard, and with it the fates of hundreds, or possibly thousands of retired NFL players. This is the first record of the issue on the public docket, however the preliminaries leading to the hearing began in the summer of last year.
Approximately 9PM EST, Podhurst Orsek filed a motion requesting leave to participate in the hearing. Details in the tweet thread. (Click on tweet to expand.)
Update: @PodhurstOrseck has requested leave to speak at the January 10 #NFL Concussion Settlement hearing. It’s worth noting that Steven Marks is a member of class counsel. Clearly he has not been kept apprised of the status of his appeal.
