Paul Anderson, whose Concussion Litigation Reporter (http://concussionpolicyandthelaw.com/concussion-litigation-reporter/) is easily the most comprehensive resource in its field, informs me that the Cordova family’s case against the Mission School District in Texas, and ImPACT Applications, Inc., which I wrote about last week, has settled. The terms are confidential.

In his full analysis, which can be accessed only by subscribers, Anderson writes:

“ImPACT has drawn fire from the scientific community for failing to identify concussions and prematurely allowing athletes to return-to-play. According to recent media reports, a series of studies concluded, ‘the false positive rate appears to be 30 percent to 40 percent of subjects of ImPACT…[it] may even increase th[e] risk’ of returning to play too soon.” (http://concussionpolicyandthelaw.com/2012/11/02/impacts-reliability-challenged-in-court/)
