Former Philadelphia Eagles and Texans linebacker DeMeco Ryans requested a Texas federal court to send his tort claims against the Houston Texans back to state court on Friday, December 30. Ryans claims the case does not implicate the National Football League’s collective bargaining agreement.
The Texans said the personal injury claims are preempted by the collective bargaining agreement under the Labor Management Relations Act.
In his motions to remand, Ryans argued that, “In fact, the only reference Ryans makes to the CBA in his first amended petition is by way of an express disclaimer providing that none of his claims ‘based on any provision of the [CBA] governing the terms and conditions of employment of [NFL] players.’ Furthermore, Ryans expressly states that the CBA is not the source of any claim asserted herein and expressly disclaims any potential remedy or cause of action that could be brought under the CBA for the injury and/or occurrence in question.”

A video, which showed former police corporal Eric Casebolt throwing a 15-year-old girl to the ground after she was commanded to leave a neighborhood pool party, went viral and shocked the nation in 2015. The girl, who had told the officer she needed to search for her glasses before leaving, was immediately attacked by the officer. The Texas Rangers subsequent investigation of Casebolt led him to resign; at the end of the investigation and trial, a grand jury decided not to indict him anyway.
In June 2016, the girl, Dajerria Becton; her family; and their lawyer, Kim Cole, held a press conference outside the McKinney Police Department in Texas, saying they planned to file civil and personal injury lawsuits against Casebolt, the city of McKinney, and the police department. And that’s what they did the first week of January 2017.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Becton is seeking a settlement from the city as she “would be best served at a private school for the remainder of her high school years due to the social backlash” from what happened.
