Following final approval of the proposed NFL concussion settlement, 11 appeals were filed by former players. In response to those appeals, co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs’ class, Chris Seeger, filed a request that the 11 appeals be consolidated and expedited by the court so that the most critically ill players who meet the the criteria for compensation can be paid as soon as possible.
Seeger released a statement:
“We are extremely disappointed and perplexed that an objector would file a notice to appeal the court’s final order, even though this decision means thousands of retired NFL players suffering from devastating neurocognitive injuries, and those concerned about their future, will now be forced to wait many months for the immediate care and support they deserve.”

In his filing, Seeger suggested a schedule that would include oral arguments in the appeals as soon as September 2015.
