Court: NFL Must Reveal Concussion Docs

National Football League officials must turn over medical documents that could reveal prior knowledge of the league’s concussion risks, a New York court ruled Friday. The ruling comes in response to a complaint by a coalition of insurance companies, who sued the NFL over allegedly failing to disclose the extent of players’ head injuries. Under the ruling, the NFL must make its doctors and medical records available to the insurance companies, a disclosure that could reveal whether the league knew and ignored the risks of traumatic head injury in the sport. The documents will likely be investigated in a private, pre-trial questioning, but could be made public if the NFL and the insurance companies do not reach a settlement.
