Buried in Documents

Sheilla buried in documents

I wanted to get an article out this week.  I really did.  But it’s just been one of those weeks where the documents (and some other interesting leads) continue to accumulate and as soon as I’ve settled on a subject to write about, something new has bumped it down further on the cue.  So–instead of an article, I’m going to give you documents this week.  Lots of documents spanning lots of cases starting with a consolidated brief filed by former Class Counsel to the NFL Concussion Settlement, Gene Locks,  appealing common benefit fee allocations that went primarily to Seeger Weiss.  The brief is accompanied by 13 volumes of supporting appendices spanning 9,891 pages.  You can find all the documents on our Document Cloud folder–or– I’ve linked two of particular interest below.

EXCLUSIVE: NFL’s Latest Dirty Deed Has Been Exposed

If there’s one thing consistent about the NFL, it’s their passion in denying benefits to former players. Roxanne Gordon described how the NFL fought and fought until her husband Amon’s thrice approved claim was denied when the NFL was given a 4th bite at the apple, and then backed up with a final denial by Judge Anita B. Brody on July 2.
Judge Brody’s order was cryptic at best, alluding to references that were no where to be found. She did not attach supporting documents with the arguments she viewed just as she didn’t in two rulings on June 13, which I wrote about shortly afterward. The article had barely been published when I was contacted by Kendra Stabler Moyes, daughter of beloved Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler, to tell me one of those denials was her father’s claim. Now the family affected by Judge Brody’s most recent ruling has come forward.
