Federal NCAA Ruling

A federal appeals court has upheld a ruling against the NCAA for using college athletes’ names, images and likenesses, alleging they violated anti-trust laws. The court also shut down a plan for paying athletes.
It all stems from a lawsuit filed by former collegiate athletes. They claimed their likenesses were used without compensation while the NCAA profited.
In today’s ruling, the three judge panel said the lower court was in error allowing college athletes to be paid up to $5,000 in deferred compensation for the use of their likeness.
