U.S. Supreme Court to hear American Needle v. NFL on January 13, 2010

The U.S. Supreme Court released its January calendar today, and announced that American Needle v. NFL will be heard on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 (h/t Ryan Rodenberg of Legal Aspects of Sports Blog). For past Sports Law Blog coverage on the case, click here. For links to various amicus briefs and other court materials, click here.

For related scholarship on this case, see:
  • Gabriel Feldman, The Puzzling Persistence of the Single Entity Argument for Sports Leagues: American Needle and the Supreme Court's Opportunity to Reject a Flawed Defense, 2009 Wisconsin Law Review __ (forthcoming, 2009)
  • Nathaniel Grow, There’s No ‘I’ in ‘League’: Professional Sports Leagues and the Single Entity Defense, 105 Michigan Law Review 183 (2006)
  • Michael McCann, American Needle v. NFL: An Opportunity to Reshape Sports Law, 119 Yale Law Journal __ (forthcoming, 2009)


Mr Edelman's economic analysis of property righst extends to opening up a couple of sports eco textbooks. Mr McCann's economics analysis is contradictory and a previous post on these topics was removed.

Do the owners of sports law blog have their own little problem of engaging in anti-competitive practices. Maybe the 1st amendment doesn't apply in blogworld?
