Neuropsychology is too well established for challenge. It's dueling experts on the interpretation of the data.

And you don't pursue these cases if liability is a question unless damages are huge.

In the NFL case, do you think they will challenge causation again? That would be a PR nightmare and undermine the changes Goodell is trying to implement. the issue will be the terms of the class action settlement which will be more about the equitable remedies than specific damages. The cost will be in the continuing medical care they will finally agree to provide.
