Hernandez Lawyer On CTE Results, Lawsuit

September 25, 2017

On Thursday, Boston University’s CTE center announced the results of an autopsy on Aaron Hernandez’s brain.  BU researchers say the former Patriots player had stage 3 CTE when he died, a level of the neurogenerative disease usually seen in players in their late 60s. Hernandez’s fiancé has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of her daughter- against the Patriots and the NFL. Ron Sullivan, part of the team which successfully defended Hernandez in a double murder trial earlier this year before the football player was found dead in an apparent suicide in his cell in April, joined Jim Braude to discuss the lawsuit.
