National Football League Players’ Concussion Injury Settlement will be Assisted by an Appointed Special Master.

On Monday December 9th 2013 , Judge Anita Brody appointed a “Special Master” to assist with the assessment of the proposed deal due to the financial complexity of the settlement. Even after the deal is finalized, retired players will have to prove they have suffered severe cognitive impairment in order to receive payment.
