A federal court judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Pop Warner, saying the two women who sued the youth football organization failed to prove that their sons’ deaths were directly linked to head trauma sustained a decade earlier as young players.

The women, Kimberly Archie and Jo Cornell, said their sons’ brain trauma was caused by playing Pop Warner football and that trauma led to irrational behavior that contributed to their deaths in 2014.
