Judge Denies NCAA’s Motion To Dismiss Antitrust Lawsuit

ncaa-logoA federal judge on Friday denied motions from the NCAA and other defendants to dismiss an antitrust lawsuit pertaining to the use of college athletes’ names and likenesses.

The ruling, by U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken, sets the stage for another key ruling that is pending in the case – whether to certify the case as a class action.

Wilken ruled none of the three arguments that the NCAA offered for dismissal “provides grounds for dismissing Plaintiffs’ claims at this stage.”
