Power struggles between settlement funder Thrivest, settlement administration and the court(s) have left players who took advances from Thrivest Specialty Funding in seemingly no-win knot that threatens to nullify their settlement awards should they manage to navigate the road of red-tape and receive one. The most recent ramifications of this point to two former players who’ve been sanctioned and stand the risk of jail time should they continue to fail to comply with an arbitration mandate that requires them to place disputed funds in escrow.

Petitioning for a writ of mandamus is viewed as an extraordinary measure, and as such, it is considered bold and used infrequently. The Third Circuit wasted no time in seeking answers from NFL Concussion Settlement Judge Anita B. Brody.
