DALLAS, Sept. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that the NFL is under fire for various cases in the media. According to CNN, on Monday, Baltimore Ravens' running back Ray Rice was released from the team and indefinitely suspended by the NFL after a video surfaced from TMZ showing the NFL player punching his future wife, Janay Palmer, then dragging her unconscious body out of an elevator in February in a casino in Atlantic City, NJ. According to CNN, also occurring on Monday, a suit was filed against another big player of the NFL, Dallas Cowboys' owner: Jerry Jones. The suit was filed Monday in Dallas County, TX by a former exotic dancer: Jana Weckerly. She claimed that Jerry Jones sexually assaulted her in 2009 "sometime in May or June." According to CNN, Weckerly is seeking "monetary relief of over $1,000,000."

Besides the recent abuse and sexual assault cases, the NFL has also been involved in cases regarding concussions and pain killer abuse. In July 2011, 75 former NFL players filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles, California Superior Court alleging that the league has covered up the harmful effects of concussions since the 1920's. Then, in 2014, former Chicago Bears quarterback, Jim McMahon, along with more than 750 other players, joined suit by filing in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, CA alleging in an 87 page complaint that the NFL "has intentionally, recklessly, and negligently created and maintained a culture of drug misuse, substituting players' health for profit." The painkiller prescription pill suit is in infantile stages at this time, while the Concussion Lawsuit settlement is expected to be approved by a Judge by the end of year. has reported that linebacker Junior Seau's family has decided to opt-out of the landmark $765MM NFL concussion settlement, which many experts believe could lead to more opt-outs from ex-players and could put
the entire settlement in jeopardy if the required opt-in percentage is not reached.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent media attention the NFL is facing, "Just when the league is trying to put to bed the concussion cases and is forced to deal with a painkiller prescription pill filing in San Francisco, here comes the Ray Rice video fallout in Atlantic City and a sexual assault lawsuit filing in Texas against the Dallas Cowboys' owner, Jerry Jones. Legal experts we have spoken with believe that, based on the legal facts of the Ray Rice penalties and the NFL's self-imposed bans, Mr. Rice could have a viable wrongful termination lawsuit against the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens if he were to be banned for life by the NFL in this domestic violence case. However, the Cowboys and the NFL are now also dealing with a separate issue of possible sexual assault from the owner of the highest valued team in the NFL, and this also needs to be addressed because of the parallels of abuse of women by two of its members."
