Dan Cohen Comments on NCAA Student-Athlete Pay Ruling in Law360


The Ninth Circuit recently struck down the NCAA's ban on paying student-athletes on the grounds that it violates federal antitrust law, but said NCAA athletes did not have to be paid beyond the cost of attending college. In this Law360 article, Dan Cohen comments on why the decision in Edward O’Bannon Jr. v. NCAA et al. is significant.

"This is a victory for the NCAA. Member schools will not be required to do anything they weren't already doing under the full-cost-of-attendance legislation passed in January. And the Ninth Circuit's holding that amateurism is integral to the NCAA's market gives the NCAA significant arguments for future antitrust cases," said Mr. Cohen.
