NFL Concussion Lawsuit Tracker: #39
On Wednesday, The Buzbee Law Firm filed its second concussion-related lawsuit, Charles Alexander et al v. NFL. The lawsuit was filed in the Southern District of Texas and includes former players, Charles Alexander, Gregory LaFleur, and Pro Bowler Lamar Lathon. The lawsuit is similar to the other 38, asserting counts of negligence, negligent misrepresentation, fraud, fraudulent concealment, and conspiracy.
The Buzbee Law Firm also represents Michael Myers. Just like that lawsuit, this one will be transferred to Philadelphia, and consolidated with the other concussion-related lawsuits.
As I continue to say, I don’t think we are anywhere close to seeing the end. There are now over 850 former players–roughly 854–involved, a small fraction of the thousands of former and retired players that could potentially join the lawsuits.
The lawsuits will continue to pile on, and they will slowly become “tag-along actions” or “related actions” joining the multidistrict litigation (MDL) in Philadelphia.
