Supreme Court Declines to Review NFL Concussion Settlement

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to review the landmark concussion settlement between the NFL and former players. The league, represented by Paul, Weiss and Paul Clement of Kirkland & Ellis LLP, had urged the Court to deny the petition by 32 former players who objected to the settlement, claiming that to do so would jeopardize the benefits due the class members under the settlement. As a practical matter, the decision ends a long-running dispute over concussions and head injuries and paves the way for as much as $1 billion to be paid out to roughly 22,000 class members beginning early next year.

The Paul, Weiss team included litigation partners Brad Karp, Ted Wells, Bruce Birenboim and Lynn Bayard.
