More on the Stringer Case The companies that manufactured the equipment that former Vikings player Korey Stringer was wearing when he died have asked the court to dismiss them as defendants in the wrongful-death suit. Riddell and All American Sports Corp. contend they are not parties to the league's collective bargaining agreement, which is the main issue in the case. Say the companies: "Claims against non-signatories can be preempted where their resolution will invoke interpretation of a CBA. The plaintiff's claims cannot be decided without running into provisions of the CBA."
