On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody severed claims against helmet company, Riddell Inc., from those pursued against the NFL in relation to a suit brought by players who have sustained traumatic head injuries during their careers.

A settlement between the NFL and the players was reached back in April, however, this settlement did not include the Riddell defendants. The court addressed the Riddell defendants on Tuesday, when it granted the helmet company’s motion for severance.
