As a result, the Hernandez Defense Team has filed a Federal suit versus the Patriots Franchise, and the NFL, on behalf of Hernandez's daughter. 

The CTE issues resulted in a billion dollar settlement being reached with a group of former players who maintain they were not aware of the risks that repeated concussions carried during their playing careers.
