Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino, along with 14 other former players, filed suit against the NFL in federal court last week, according to the Los Angeles Times. The suit comes as a $765 million settlement for concussion litigation still awaits approval. Here’s more on Marino from the Times:
The 18-page complaint alleges the NFL concealed information about football-related brain injuries and misled players, claims that are similar to those made in more than 300 related lawsuits. The NFL has repeatedly denied such claims. No specific symptoms are alleged for Marino, selected to nine Pro Bowl games when he played from 1983 to 1999. Boilerplate language is used in Marino’s short-form complaint. One is submitted for each plaintiff… Marino’s lawsuit seeks medical monitoring and unspecified financial recovery.
