While the issues surrounding dementia claim difficulties continue to be shrouded in mystery, settlement funder issues in the NFL Concussion Settlement have presented a more visible face, and the face at the center of the drama is that of William White.

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.

A few days I wrote that a litigation funder is seeking a writ of mandamus at the Third Circuit, asking the appeals court to enforce their Opinion and mandate. 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.

On Friday Thrivest Specialty Funding filed a letter to Judge Brody inquiring as to why the Claim Administrator isn’t in compliance with a Third Circuit mandate.

On Thursday, Judge Anita Brody ordered former Rams and Redskins safety Toby Wright to arbitration with Thrivest Specialty funding. That she ordered the player to arbitration isn’t surprising considering an April 26 ruling by the Third Circuit, vacating her ruling that enjoined Thrivest from pursuing arbitration against a different player and her dismissal of Thrivest’s complaint against him, the tone of her order is somewhat curious.
