My friends Roger Orlando and Ronnie Mabra are doing good work, and here is a PR I just received
Atlanta, GA (November 22, 2013) –
In a key filing today, more than 25 former college football players including lead Plaintiffs Jerry
Caldwell from Georgia Tech and Johnny Brown from the University of Georgia have asked to hold
the NCAA accountable for life altering brain injuries suffered on fields of play.
Litigation Resources (http://
The lawsuit, filed in Federal Court in Atlanta, GA on behalf of all former college football players
who are experiencing the same type of problems associated with repeated traumatic head injuries,
seeks medical monitoring and testing. Each suffered traumatic and lifelong brain injuries.
Motor Vehicle Collisions (http://
The Complaint lists former football players from across the USA. They played the game at
universities ranging from Stanford, Boston College, and Vanderbilt, to Valdosta State and Ft. Valley

The complaint claims that the NCAA had a duty to educate former players about the risks of
concussions and asks an Atlanta Georgia Court to establish protocols to prevent, mitigate,
monitor, diagnose, and treat brain injuries; and to offer education and needed medical monitoring
to its former players.
The attorneys for all the players are, Roger Orlando and Ronnie Mabra. Mr. Orlando says that the
NCAA has not taken the necessary steps to protect these former players: “For decades the NCAA
knew of the dangers of head injuries to student athletes . Indeed, its founding was based in part on
the brutality of the game in the early 1900s. These injuries have affected former players of all ages
at all levels of college football.”
Mr. Mabra, counsel on the filed action and a former Georgia Tech football player and current state
legislator notes: “of all cases recently filed, none have the diversity and true representation that
this filed case has,” noting that concussions harmed players from large well known universities to
small state based colleges .
The complaint seeks a court-supervised, NCAA-funded, comprehensive medical monitoring
program to benefit former football players.
