Landmark Case on behalf of deceased Notre Dame football player allowed to proceed

See the link that attaches the recent opinion given by the Ohio Supreme Court that allows the case to move forward on behalf of the deceased Notre Dame football player Steve Schmitz, a running back and kick return specialist. Steve died at age 59, and his autopsy showed CTE and Alzheimer’s Disease. The Locks Law Firm is lead counsel for the Estate of Steve Schmitz and represents his widow Yvette and his two children. We intend to move the case forward to trial.
