New Law Review Essay on District Court Ruling in O'Bannon v. NCAA

It is my pleasure to share my newest law review essay "The District Court Decision in O'Bannon v. National Collegiate Athletic Association: A Small Step Forward for College Athlete Rights, and a Gateway for Far Grander Change."

The essay, which will be published this December in Washington & Lee Law Review, explains why the district court decision in O'Bannon v. NCAA was correct to hold that the NCAA unreasonably restrained trade, but incorrect to issue an injunction capping athlete compensation through a deferred trust amount of $5,000 per year.

The essay also looks at the possible next steps in the movement for college athlete rights, including potential appeals, lobbying before Congress, unionization efforts, Title IX concerns, and future litigation in Jenkins v. NCAA.

Reader comments on the essay on strongly appreciated.
