Riddell was found not liable in a lawsuit brought against it for a high school football player's injury.
A Mississippi jury took five days to unanimously hold that the football helmet manufacturer was not responsible for the stroke suffered by a ninth grade student, reports The Associated Press.
The student had been participating in a school-sponsored football practice when he was hit. The parents of the student claimed that the helmet pushed back on the student's neck, causing the stroke. However, the Mississippi jury basically found that Riddell was not an insurer against all injuries and sometimes tragic accidents will happen.
