Judge lets ex-NHL player’s concussion lawsuit continue

The NHL’s motion to dismiss a class-action lawsuit brought by former players over concussion-related injuries was largely rejected Wednesday by a federal judge, allowing the claims to move forward.

The plaintiffs have been seeking unspecified financial damages and medical monitoring for neurological disorders. They’ve argued the league had the knowledge and resources to better prevent head trauma, failed to properly warn players of such risks and promoted violent play that led to their injuries.

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson wrote in her order that the former players “adequately alleged that the NHL negligently or fraudulently omitted information on an ongoing basis.”
