Quote:
Dallas - The NCAA reached a settlement on Friday in Texas state court with the widow of a college football player who suffered from a brain disease linked to repeated concussions, bringing the much anticipated first-in-the-nation trial to an abrupt end.

Judge Kenneth Molberg dismissed the jury three days after opening statements took place in what was the first trial ever in a lawsuit seeking to hold the NCAA responsible for a college football player’s chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE.


I'm sure the settlement included a non-disclosure agreement but I's guess that the vultures that go around disguised as lawyers are smelling blood. If the NCAA paid out then suits could multiply faster than rabbits. And how long before schools with large endowments become targets?

All parties come to an end and all bubbles burst eventually.
