Lawsuit against the NFLEdit

In December 2011, Scioli was part of a group of 11 other professional players who filed a lawsuit against the NFL. The players and their attorneys alleged that the League failed to properly treat head injuries in spite of prevailing medical evidence and the prevalent use of Toradol administered by the team to the players as a pain-masking agent, leading the players to develop effects of brain injury.[3]
