Pro Se Motion withheld from docket in NFL Concussion Settlement – Why?

Last week I reported on a motion filed by Locks Law Firm seeking to work as administrative counsel in the NFL Concussion Settlement in order to correct the failings of the settlement caused by the NFL’s aggressive stance against legitimate claims coupled with Co-Lead Class Counsel Chris Seeger’s inability or unwillingness to defend the players he was appointed to represent.  The motion carefully details fourteen points in which the settlement has been amended, at least in practice, in ways favorable to the NFL and detrimental to the players it was purposed to compensate for the results of brain injury from their NFL careers.  More than twenty law firms filed joinder to the motion, pleading the court for administrative relief.  One pro se Class Member also filed a joinder as is the right of those who are self-represented, but for reasons yet to be explained, the motion was neither acknowledged by the Court nor posted to the docket as protocol would demand.
