Today the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit announced it will hear oral argument regarding the appeals related to the NFL concussion case on November 20, 2015.
By setting this date, it appears that the Court understands that the players want a decision as quickly as possible. Normally, the Court does not schedule oral arguments for 15-18 months after a Notice of Appeal has been filed. Here, the Court scheduled the argument approximately six months from the first Notice of Appeal. We are hopeful things will move rapidly.
