the lawsuit claims that Lacrosse Group engaged in misrepresentation asserting that Cascade R lacrosse helmets were compliant with standards established by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE).
The NOCSAE determined that the helmets failed to meet the standard. The plaintiffs indicated that had they known that the helmets were not compliant they would have not purchased the safety gear
The manufacturer denies the allegations but is agreeing to settle to avoid a lengthy trial
