Dan Marino joins concussion lawsuit against the NFL
Jun. 3, 2014 USA Today
Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino is among the latest group of NFL players to file a concussion-related lawsuit against the NFL.
Marino and 14 other former NFL players filed the lawsuit in a federal court in Pennsylvania May 28, joining more than 4,500 others who had previously accused the NFL of misleading players about the long-term dangers of concussions.
The NFL and the plaintiffs agreed on a $765 million settlement last August, but the settlement was rejected by a federal judge in January.
The suit filed by Marino and others is similar in nature to hundreds of earlier lawsuits, and accuses the NFL of “carelessness, negligence, intentional misconduct” regarding concussions, according to the documents filed last week and obtained by USA TODAY Sports.
