College Football Players Sue NCAA over Head Trauma

Class action suit over concussions


Former college football players sued the NCAA in two federal class actions, demanding court-supervised medical monitoring for risks of brain injuries from their playing days, and damages for gross negligence.

Lead plaintiff Jerry Caldwell sued the NCAA in Atlanta; lead plaintiff Paul Morgan and sued in Minneapolis.

Caldwell was a defensive back for the Georgia Institute of Technology from 1995 to 1998. He claims he suffered repeated traumatic head impacts and concussions during his college days.
