NFL asks judge to dismiss concussion lawsuits

The National Football League (NFL) has asked a federal judge to dismiss more than 100 concussion-related lawsuits brought by former players. The league argued that the cases should be resolved according to terms of its collective bargaining agreement, not by the courts.

The NFL called the litigation a labor dispute and argues that the lawsuits lack proof that the risks of head trauma were concealed.

For their part, players accuse the league of negligence, arguing that NFL officials concealed known medical links between concussions and brain injuries. Allegedly, that led many to suffer from dementia or Alzheimer's disease, or face a higher risk of reckless or suicidal behavior.
