JUDGE DENIES ADIDAS MOTION ON SIZE OF LOGOS ON NCAA UNIS
Published March 29, 1999
U.S. District Judge G.T. VanBebber denied adidas America's motion for a preliminary injunction regarding an NCAA bylaw that limits the size of logos on uniforms. VanBebber ruled Friday that adidas failed to show there is the likelihood it will eventually prevail on the merits of its claims (NCAA). adidas filed suit on November 12 claiming that the NCAA's bylaw restricting the size of commercial logos on apparel violated federal antitrust laws. VanBebber ruled that the bylaw prevents "member schools from turning their student-athletes into billboards in the pursuit of advertising revenues" (AP, 3/27).
