Judge approves NFL's $765 million concussion settlement
The NFL has received final court approval to pay $765 million to settle concussion-related lawsuits first raised almost two years ago. More than 4,500 ex-players sued the league in 2013, claiming that it failed to protect them adequately against concussions and head injuries. The league had reached an agreement with players to pay $765 million, but the settlement was initially blocked by a federal judge who said the figure might not be enough to provide for the needs of 20,000 retired players.
