Professor Sagers Writes in Washington & Lee Law Review’s Online Edition on O’Bannon Case

chris_sagers_329Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law, was invited to co-author a reply article about the landmark district court decision in O’Bannon v. NCAA. The article appears in the Washington & Lee Law Review’s Online edition, and is available for free here.

In the O’Bannon case, the federal district court for the Northern District of California found the NCAA’s ban on compensation to student-athletes for use of their names and likeness to be an antitrust violation.  Many observers expect the eventual consequences to be more significant, and that student-athletes will eventually start to share in some of the revenue they generate.   Sagers, along with his co-author Michael Carrier of the Rutgers-Camden Law school and 24 other professors of antitrust and sports law, had earlier written an amicus brief in the O’Bannon case supporting the plaintiffs in the NCAA’s appeal before the Ninth Circuit.
