Extension on the GLA Lawsuit!

Apr 20, 2010

We’ll start this post off with an inquiry that just came in today:


I am sending this email in regards to the class action lawsuit. My name was on the list which was posted: Leroy Jones – I played with the Chargers from 1976 – 1984. I never received any information concerning the distribution of the funds as to when and how it will occur.


Can you give me any information concerning this subject? Since I heard about the lawsuit settlement in the news I have had Prostate cancer and open heart surgery. Never heard any more about the lawsuit and distribution of the funds. If you cannot help me, do you have a point of contact I can call or email?


Thanks so much for your help.


Leroy Jones

San Diego Chargers

1976 – 1984


In our phone conversation, Leroy said, “I don’t know why the NFLPA or the NFL couldn’t provide current addresses for the mailing. The NFLPA and the Alumni sure know how to reach me every year when it comes to asking me for that $100 annual membership fee!”


We called the folks at Garden City Group right here in Seattle and they informed us the deadline was just extended to June 1, 2010 so that more of the players on that GLA list could submit their qualification and contact forms to receive their checks! They also informed us that Ryan Hilbert at Manatt Phelps was the best person to call directly at (650) 812-1347. Call Ryan and provide your address and phone number so they can get you the proper paperwork to send back to them. They will send out your first check after they’ve received your form. And those second checks should be going out some time shortly after June 10, 2010. We just sent Leroy’s information directly to Manatt to make things easier for him after his open heart surgery.

As an added precaution, you might consider mailing your paperwork via USPS Certified Mail (or FedEx) with a return receipt so you know they received your paperwork on time. And making a photocopy of the paperwork for your files might not be a bad idea either.

    Are the second checks going out June 10th or is it still in late July as per the installment agreement?

    And is it me or does it seem that everyone who has ever gotten screwed has played for the Chargers?

    Just out of curiosity. I played for the LA Rams from 1980 to 1983. Do I qualify for this?
