Seeger Weiss is pleased to announce that founding partner Christopher A. Seeger has recently been appointed as Plaintiffs’ Co-Lead Counsel in the litigation pending in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The litigation, styled as In Re: National Football League Players’ Concussion Injury Litigation, MDL No. 2323, is pending before the Honorable Anita B. Brody. This appointment comes as thousands of former football players have filed suit against the National Football League focusing on the negligence of the NFL in not providing adequate warnings of the risks associated with concussions and related head trauma injuries.

In making the appointment during the initial MDL status conference, Judge Brody stated, “I want lead counsel.  I have done my homework on that too.  And I would very much like one of co-lead counsel to be Mr. Seeger, Chris Seeger.  I have to tell you, the ratings of people who have had MDLs with you involved have been very, very high, your law firm.” 

Mr. Seeger has a formidable reputation for leading large, complex litigations.  Mr. Seeger led the Vioxx® Liability Litigation, for which he and others negotiated a $4.85 billion settlement on behalf of thousands of plaintiffs.  Mr. Seeger also currently serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the Yasmin and Yaz MDL and on the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee for the Gadolinium-Based Contrast Dyes MDL.
