ADIDAS HEARING IN KANSAS CITY CONCLUDES; RULING IN ONE MONTH
Published February 16, 1999
A hearing in adidas America's suit against the NCAA over the size of commercial logos on player uniforms "wrapped up Friday in federal court," according to Steve Rock of the K.C. STAR. All that's "left now is written closing arguments from both sides and oral closing arguments if U.S. District Judge Thomas Van Bebber decides they're warranted." A ruling is expected within a month. Before the hearing concluded Friday, adidas lawyers "presented the jersey" of a Univ. of TN football player, "presumably to show the commercialism depicted on it in the form of a 'Tostitos Fiesta Bowl' patch" (K.C. STAR, 2/13).
