Amon Gordon, a former defensive end football player has been going head to head with the NFL for years. Mr. Gordon has been fighting the NFL over their dicey langue on the concussion class settlement. This twisted language has made it harder for former players who are suffering from concussions to get compensated.
Last week Mr. Gordon was denied for his claim for his concussion. Because of this, he and his family have filed an appeal with the Third Circut Court. They and others accuse the NFL of effectively altering the agreed-upon standards for recovery. What makes this even more interesting is that the Circuit court is asking why they should even bother to hear the case. This is because the Judge who oversaw this case ruled that this settlement was final and binding.
This settlement took place in 2015 and settled a number of cases against the NFL and their alleged knowledge of the long term dangers of concussions. It should be noted that Gordon is not the only one claiming the NFL is playing bait and switch. Several players attorneys have claimed that the settlement’s plain language has been repeatedly twisted to impose new rules and standards that make it harder for players to get paid.
