COURT REPORT: CBSSPORTS.com's Mike Singer noted the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday "levied its latest decision in the on-going 'player likeness' suit, denying the NCAA the right to intervene in settlement talks between former college athletes and EA Sports and the Collegiate Licensing Company." The athletes, led by former Arizona State Univ. QB Sam Keller, "sued the NCAA, EA Sports as well as the CLC for using and profiting from their images." A federal appeals court "sided with the plaintiffs and then EA Sports attempted to appeal with the Supreme Court." Ultimately, EA Sports and the CLC "settled, essentially leaving the NCAA peeved and out of the discussion" (CBSSPORTS.com, 1/14).
