Judge denies class-action status for NHL concussion lawsuit
The federal judge overseeing the NHL concussion case has denied class-action status for the former players suing the league over head injuries.
U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson issued her 46-page order on Friday, the first significant victory for the league in a landmark lawsuit that was filed almost five years ago.
Nelson wrote that widespread differences” in state laws about medical monitoring, which the retired players are seeking, would present significant case management difficulties.”
The litigation continues. We will continue to litigate the players’ claims on a case-by-case basis, for all who have incurred injuries and damages, he told ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski. Players with traumatic brain injuries need to file their claims and justice http://www.authenticflamestore.com/authentic-9-lanny-mcdonald-jersey.html will prevail as we move forward.
Nelson previously issued two significant rulings against the league. In 2015, she denied a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on the sufficiency of the allegations. The following year, she rejected a motion to dismiss the case for labor law pre-emption, on the argument that the collective bargaining agreement between Lanny McDonald Jersey the NHL and its players supersedes the court.
The NHL had no comment on Friday’s ruling.
Shore was the 61st overall pick when the Stars took him in the second round of the 2012 NHL draft.
The Stars also signed left wing Adam Mascherin, their fourth-round pick in last month’s draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract. Mascherin had 296 points (122 goals and 174 assists) in 259 games in the Ontario Hockey League the past four seasons.
Whether it be certainly a lot of the players you would trade for, http://www.officialauthenticscowboysstore.com/Nike-Cole-Beasley-Jersey.html there are risks that they are not going to be with your team, you don’t necessarily have them on a long-term contract, Harris continued. So we talk about this stuff endlessly and how to manage those risks. If the right situation comes where we can acquire somebody that will really add value to our program and the cost of it isn’t Cole Beasley Jersey prohibitive, then we will move forward and do that. If that doesn’t come along for whatever reason, we will keep moving forward with our program. Just based on what we did this offseason, we are going to get better and move closer to our goal, which is that NBA championship that we keep talking to. If we get the right deal, we will do it.
