The New York Times article quoted Michael Kaplen:
Michael Kaplen, a co-writer of a friend-of-the-court brief filed on behalf of the Brain Injury Association of America, went further. He said that arguing about whether C.T.E. was or was not compensated was a distraction from the more immediate physical, emotional and behavioral impairments that players receive from repeated head hits.
He also doubted the N.F.L. would willingly amend the settlement in the years ahead.
“I have a bridge to sell you if you believe the N.F.L. is going to come back in 10 years and reopen this,” he said.
In April 2015, the district court approved a settlement between the National Football League and the 5,000 retired players who had accused the league of hiding the dangers of concussions. The brief filed by Kaplen & De Caro supports the appeal by some of the players.
