Law360 Quotes Patrick Scully on Controversial NFL Liability Waiver

DENVER, Colo. (January 24, 2020) – Law360 quoted Patrick Scully in an article titled “NFL Labor Talks Hit Snag Over Injury Liability Waiver.”  The article, published on January 23, discusses how the proposed liability waiver for on-field injuries is holding up labor negotiations between the NFL and its players.

A former National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) lawyer, union attorney, and corporate general counsel, Patrick was sourced for commentary based on his extensive knowledge of traditional labor relations.  He notes that, “[i]t is clearly the concern that somehow we will be dealing in a world where preemption does not apply and there is not a sufficient waiver of liability to protect the clubs from anything that happens. In that netherworld, there is big dollars and big liability.”
