NCAA Faces Another Lawsuit Over Concussions

Three former college-football players on Wednesday filed a federal lawsuit accusing the NCAA of failing to educate them about the risks associated with concussions and of not doing enough to prevent and treat brain injuries, the Associated Press reported.

The lawsuit seeks the establishment of a medical-monitoring program for former football players, paid for by the NCAA. The suit is similar to another one filed against the NCAA in Illinois two years ago. Lawyers in that case, as in the new lawsuit, are seeking to expand it into a class action.

Donald Remy, the NCAA’s chief legal officer, said the association had not yet had the opportunity to review and evaluate the latest lawsuit, according to the AP.
