Following Suit: Pitt Joins 'Cuse In Agreeing To Pay Big East $7.5M For Early Exit To ACC
Published July 19, 2012
FROG BRIGADE: BLOOMBERG NEWS’ Schoenberg & Gullo report the Big East “ended its lawsuit accusing Texas Christian University of reneging on an agreement to join the college sports organization when it instead signed on with the Big 12.” A federal court filing in DC stated that the conference moved to dismiss the case "with prejudice, meaning it can’t bring a new lawsuit on the same subject.” The Big East’s attorney Benjamin Block “didn’t give a reason for dismissal in the filing” (BLOOMBERG NEWS, 7/19).
