NFLPA Settles With Retired Players In Madden Lawsuit

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) has settled its lawsuit with a group of over 2,000 former players who were seeking licensing fees related to videogames, trading cards and other products that featured their likenesses.

A jury decided in November that the NFLPA must pay $7.1 million for breaching its fiduciary duty to retired players whose likenesses were used in the Madden NFL series, while an additional $21 million was awarded in punitive damages.

At the time the NFLPA said it would appeal the decision, but it has now settled out of court for $26 million, netting the former players about $10,000 each after fees, reports The New York Times.

The story is too old to be commented.
