Lawyers Could Face Their Own Legal Battles: Karma or Bad News?

Not that there is a case right now, but if in fact the statute of limitations or trial law forbids this new look at expanded lockout insurance and money lost to players, lawyers may be the next in line to get sued HAHAHA As Florio wrote at PFT: Per Kaplan, "[a]lmost all NFL contracts with sponsors" contain provisions guaranteeing payment in the event of a lockout. Under the same reasoning that Judge Doty accepted in the case that focused on the TV deals, he could find that the league took less money during normal operations in the hopes of getting money for nothing during a lockout. The move likely is all about leverage. As in the players trying to get more of it. And it could expose the lawyers to scrutiny for failing to make the argument earlier, especially if the applicable statute of limitations has expired, making the allegation too little, too late. Indeed, the contention should have been included in the original lockout insurance claim. If it wasn’t, and if it’s now too late to pursue it, well, here’s hoping that the lawyers have been paying their malpractice insurance premiums.
