LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court wants a mediator to review a man's effort to collect damages from the NFL for his paralyzing injury in a 2007 strip club melee involving football player Adam "Pacman" Jones.

The court assigned a settlement judge to mediate former club doorman Tommy Urbanski's effort to hold the league accountable for his injury.

A judge in 2008 dismissed the NFL from a civil damages lawsuit that led to a judgment against Jones that now amounts to $13 million for Urbanski and his wife.

Urbanski's lawyer, Matthew Dushoff, says the league should be held responsible.

Attorneys and a court spokesman call a settlement conference a standard step in such cases.

The state high court called for a February report from the mediation judge.
