As a result of Judge Brody’s orders restructuring the MAF program, all but eliminating the settlement’s provisions and protections for pre-effective date claims, and narrowing the generally consistent standard to a hair-thin line, the claims administrator has developed new forms that whether or not by design, will lead players into a trap the NFL has long awaited.

This is not an exaggeration. In an investigation that Advocacy for Fairness in Sports has been pursuing for the past two months, we’ve finally obtained evidence of the NFL’s latest bid to stop dementia claims in their tracks and to once and for all, put a lid on the uncapped settlement purposed to compensate players suffering from latent brain injury.
The NFL is seeking to permanently disqualify players from the settlement program and pursue criminal fraud charges against them if they feel they have “evidence” of a player misrepresenting any details of his condition.

Down on his luck after retiring from the NFL following a 2001 Super Bowl win, and now in his mid-40s, Larry Webster listened carefully as a lawyer in Tallahassee, Florida, told him that he was guaranteed a 6-figure check from the newly inked NFL Concussion Settlement. The plight of Webster and numerous other retired NFLers is told in extraordinary detail in an investigative report by Law360’s Ryan Boysen.

On July 2, the same day Judge Brody issued a final denial to the Gordon family’s thrice approved, and then denied settlement claim, Chris Seeger sent an emailed letter to the class of retired players…
The next paragraph, however, is a departure from Seeger’s normal mode of communication and I feel it’s the most important paragraph in the letter—possibly the most important piece of information he’s presented to the class of retired players in the entire history of the settlement.

Last week, Judge Brody issued rulings in three individual appeals, and in each instance, the appellee prevailed. In this instance, two appeals were players who sought to reverse denied claims and in the other, the NFL sought to kill an approved claim.

In a motion filed on June 4, attorney James Acho, implores the court to release the 5% holdbacks that have been deducted from every paid award since claims processing began for the NFL Concussion Settlement.

On Friday, Judge Anita Brody issued an order firing all class counsel not named Christopher Seeger.
The reasons stated in the order appear to be a smokescreen in that no class counsel are paid unless assigned work by Chis Seeger or Judge Brody.
