Tony Dorsett workers’ comp claim dismissal

A Cali­for­nia work­ers’ com­pens­a­tion judge threw out a brain in­jury claim by NFL Hall of Fame run­ning back Tony Dor­sett in May be­cause he had ac­cep­ted a set­tle­ment for or­tho­ped­ic in­jur­ies in 1991. In Au­gust, three judges up­held that de­cision. Dor­sett was dia­gnosed with symp­toms of chron­ic trau­mat­ic en­ceph­alo­pathy (CTE) this week.
