Major Pro Sports Unions Want To Present Arguments In EA Case
Published January 26, 2011
Oral arguments normally are limited to the direct parties, but the sports unions filed a friend of the court brief in November on behalf of Keller, arguing the college player should be compensated by EA and the NCAA. The request asks for five minutes of time on behalf of the NFLPA, MLBPA, NBPA, NHLPA and MLSPU. EA objected to the request, stating that it is unnecessary. But if the court agrees to it, the video game maker should have an extra five minutes.
