Published August 10, 2014
U.S. District Court Judge Claudia Wilken late Friday issued her 99-page ruling "in favor of a group of plaintiffs" led by O'Bannon." She ruled that the NCAA's limits on "what major college football and men's basketball players can receive for playing sports 'unreasonably restrain trade' in violation of antitrust laws" (USATODAY.com, 8/8).
