Hausfeld LLP Announces Judge Permits Historic Case against the NCAA to Proceed as A Class Action
Nov 9 13
Hausfeld LLP announced that the court overseeing the O'Bannon case against the NCAA has certified a class of current and former student-athletes for purposes of seeking injunctive relief. This means that current and former student-athletes can challenge the NCAA's rules and policies forbidding compensation to athletes for the use of their names, images, and likenesses as a group. While the court granted certification of the injunctive relief class, it denied certification of the damages class, meaning that the court will not permit athletes to seek payment for past use of the names, images, and likenesses as a group. The complaint alleges a conspiracy by the NCAA and its business partners, such as videogame manufacturer EA and licensing agent CLC, to license and sell the names, images, and likeness of current and former student-athletes without compensation to those student-athletes, under the guise of "amateurism." The defendants and their co-conspirators have collectively reaped billions of dollars in revenue from the license and sale of game footage, video games, photographs, apparel, trading cards, and other memorabilia containing the names, images, and likenesses of current and former student-athletes without paying a cent to those whose names, images, and likenesses were used.
National Collegiate Athletic Association Loses Major Ruling on Scholarships Class-Action Lawsuit
Aug 19 13
U.S. District Court Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson of the Southern District of Indiana issued a ruling flatly rejecting the National Collegiate Athletic Association's bid to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Hagens Berman alleging that NCAA scholarship rules violate federal antitrust laws. The suit, filed July 25, 2012, claims that the NCAA's prohibition of multi-year guaranteed scholarships and limits on the number and amount of scholarships at NCAA institutions is an illegal restraint of the labor market, in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. The Court had twice dismissed cases with similar claims, ruling that the plaintiffs failed to identify a relevant market, a requirement for claims under the antitrust laws. In each case, the judge pointed out technical issues with the plaintiffs' complaint. The attorneys have now fixed those issues and the judge has rejected the NCAA's third bid to dismiss the suit.
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Rejects Electronic Arts and National Collegiate Athletic Association Appeal in Player Likeness Case
Jul 31 13
U.S. court of appeals handed down a ruling in the high-profile case against Electronic Arts and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) over the use of student-athletes' likenesses in video games, gutting Electronic Arts' claim that the practice is protected by the First Amendment. The ruling, handed down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, remands the case back to the trial court to proceed against all defendants, including the NCAA. The case, originally filed on May 5, 2009, in U.S. District Court in Northern California, was brought by Sam Keller, a former starting quarterback for Arizona State University and University of Nebraska. Keller and his attorneys at Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP claim that EA's NCAA games use the athletes' likenesses, accurately depicting the height, age, weight and other information, without permission. EA had claimed the First Amendment protected its right to publish the games. After losing in US District Court, EA appealed to the Ninth Circuit.
