Mark Emmert Says NCAA To Appeal Ed O'Bannon Ruling
Published August 10, 2014
After a series of conference calls with all 32 conferences yesterday, the NCAA "has not had a lot of answers for its members, as the organization seeks further clarification" (N.Y. TIMES, 8/10). The appeals process could "last two or three years, or substantially longer should the NCAA win along the way." An NCAA appeal would "first be heard" by the Ninth Circuit, which "is regarded as one of the most labor-friendly appellate courts" (SI.com, 8/9). O'Bannon yesterday said, "You want to go to the Supreme Court, let's go" (AP, 8/9).
