A class action lawsuit has been filed against the National Football League; NFL Properties, the NFL's equipment-licensing arm; Ridell, manufacturer of helmets and shoulder pads used by NFL teams; and Dr. John Lombardo, a Columbus physician who has long served as medical advisor to the NFL. The suit was filed by the family of Korey Stringer, who developed heat stroke during a practice on July 31, 2001, and died from complications of heat stroke. The suit was filed to compensate Stringer's family, as well as to eliminate the practices, equipment, and culture in the NFL that the family believes contributes to heat illness among NFL players.
