At the Regents - Football Concussions - UCLA

We reproduced the agenda for the open sessions of the UC Regents meetings of July 16-18 yesterday.* Of course, there are also closed sessions at those meetings. In particular, Compliance and Audit's closed session features a review of various litigation in which UC is involved, mainly as a defendant.

It appears that there will be a review in that closed session of "concussion litigation," presumably related to football brain injuries.** In particular, although a specific case is not listed, there is pending litigation aimed at UCLA about which we posted in May.*** Eventually, such cases could have a major impact on college football generally.
