    Unsealed deposition and head trauma

    More than a decade ago, the NFL agreed to settle the concussion class action in order to, among other things, avoid litigation that would have resulted in plenty of problematic documents and testimony coming to light through the discovery process.

    Discovery still happened, however, in a case involving whether the NFL was entitled to insurance coverage for the concussion settlement. Deposition testimony from that case recently was unsealed.

    Re: Unsealed deposition and head trauma

    Daniel Kaplan of FrontOfficeSports.com has posted an article with quotes from some of the unsealed depositions, led by testimony from Commissioner Roger Goodell.

    The case has placed the NFL in a tough spot. On one hand, it needs to show that there is enough of a link between football and head injuries to trigger insurance coverage. On the other hand, the NFL has been wired for decades to downplay the connection.
