A litigation funding company has filed an appeal from the ruling last month by the judge overseeing the NFL concussion settlement – a ruling that invalidated litigation funding agreements with cognitively-impaired ex-players.
And that ruling raises a question: did the judge make a no-call, like NFL refs sometimes do – that could have prevented the litigation funders from even attempting to recoup any monies paid to the players.
That question gets explored in a LinkedIn article available here. An article about the appeal being filed is available here. A previous Secondary Insurance Market Blog post about the December ruling in the NFL concussion settlement lawsuit is available here.
