While the NFL Concussion Settlement is fund for payment of claims to for compensation of former player suffering from neurocognitive impairment, the fund for class counsel compensation is not. While the NFL is acutely aware of what it’s spending, and fighting claims with a fury, Co-Lead Class Counsel Chris Seeger seems to take no issue with spending with abandon. In a motion filed Thursday, attorney Lance Lubel asks the court to deny Seeger’s most recent fee petition and put him on a budget before there’s no money left.

A hearing to decide the fate of the one of two paths of qualification for monetary awards in the oft-heralded but largely problematic NFL Concussion Settlement was scheduled for January 10. On January 9, it was cancelled and announced that the NFL had withdrawn the appeal that prompted the hearing. Co-Lead Class Counsel Chris Seeger proclaimed victory over the NFL and its “meritless appeal,” but in reality, the NFL got everything it asked for and more, so there’s pause to consider if someone was behind a curtain and how things sometimes are not what they appear to be.
