Ex-NFLer seeks $118K in attorneys' fees from league benefit plan after 9th Circuit win

Sep 8, 2021

Per Law360: A former NFL cornerback's attorneys asked the Ninth Circuit on Tuesday to send a message to the league's retirement plan by forcing it to pay $118,000 in fees they accrued successfully challenging the denial of the ex-player's disability benefits.

The request from Charles Dimry's Pillsbury & Coleman LLP lawyers came after a Ninth Circuit panel last month affirmed a lower court ruling.
