Default NFL Concussion lawsuits

If they're going to be discussed and disparaged they should, at least, be read.

There are strong allegation in the complaint. There is a cause of action for fraud. To sustain a claim of fraud, they are required to plead and prove each of the nine elements of fraud: (1) a representation; (2) falsity of the representation; (3) materiality of the representation; (4) speaker’s knowledge of the falsity of the representation; (5) the speaker’s intent it should be relied upon; (6) the hearer’s ignorance of the falsity of the representation; (7) the hearer’s reliance on the representation; (8) the hearer’s right to rely on the representation; and (9) the hearer’s consequent and proximate injury caused by reliance on the representation.

It's not as easy burden but what if they meet it?
