On Wednesday, Judge Brody issued an order that will likely be the death knell to most dementia claims in the NFL Concussion Settlement after the Special Masters in charge of settlement operations made a request to the Court. In April, the NFL filed a motion requesting a special court-appointed fraud investigator, claiming that massive fraud was holding up valid claims. A hearing on the motion was held in May, and on July 18, Judge Brody issued a notice stating that she would defer ruling on the motion unless either Claims Administrator BrownGreer of the Special Masters made the request. I was present at the hearing and it seemed that the Claims Administrator and Special Masters were opposed at the time. No reason for reversal of that opinion was stated in the Special Masters’ request, leaving one to speculate as to their changed position.
