Paul Clement is the attorney that argued before the Supreme Court against ObamaCare last year and again before the court last week for California's proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act. On Tuesday, Clement argued before a federal court in Philadelphia on behalf of the NFL hoping to get years of litigation, filed by thousands former players suffering the ill effects of concussions, tossed. The players argue the league should have taken greater precaution and responsibility for their health, and the league argues football is a violent sport and that the players can’t argue they were ignorant of the risks. Billions of dollars and the health and safety of a league of players lay at stake.

On 'Real News' Tuesday the panel discussed the case and where the league's responsibility ends and personal responsibility from the players begins.
