A “master complaint” lawsuit — consolidating almost 100 suits from more than 2,000 ex-NFL players and their families — will be filed against the league in court on Thursday, the Los Angeles Times reported .
The complaint, which will be filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleges that the NFL “deliberately and fraudently concealed from its players the link between football-related head injuriea and long-term neurological injuries.”
Expected to talk to reporters Thursday is Mary Ann Easterling — widow of ex-Atlanta Falcons safety Ray Easterling, who committed suicide. Also scheduled to talk is and Kevin Turner, a former NFL fullback who has Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The plaintiffs claim their suit grants former players and their families “to finally hold the league accountable for its misconduct.”
