Panthers | Jeffers needs to decide on appeal
Charles Chandler, of the Charlotte Observer, reports former Carolina Panthers WR Patrick Jeffers will need to decide if he wants to continue his legal battle against the team after an NFL arbitrator ruled that the case does not belong in a courtroom. Two days after the March 25 arbitration ruling, Jeffers' claims against the Panthers were dismissed with prejudice. Jeffers accused former team physician Dr. Donald D'Alessandro of malpractice and negligence during an Aug. 2000 surgery and said the team was negligent in retaining the doctor because they knew he had a propensity to perform operations that exceeded the inform consent given by Carolina players.
