The 2010 Tulane Law School Moot Court Mardi Gras Invitational Sports Law Competition

Last week, Tulane Law School hosted the 2010 Tulane Law School Moot Court Mardi Gras Invitational Sports Law Competition. This year’s problem was based on the Star Caps case that has been discussed at great length on this site.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the students at Tulane Law School—in particular Nathan Prihoda, Marcus Edwards, Daniel Meyer, Julia Farinas, Andrew Miragliotta, Ashlee Cassman—for all of their hard work in putting this event together. I also want to thank our “celebrity” guest judges for joining me on the panel to judge the finals of the competition. The guest judges were: Andrew Brandt, the founder of the National Football Post and a former vice president for the Green Bay Packers (among many other things), Richard House, General Counsel of the New Orleans Hornets. Judge John Grout, Jr., and Joe Ettinger, Tulane Law class of 1956. And, of course, thanks to the students from the 40 different law schools from around the country for competing in this year’s event. All of the judges were impressed with the quality of the teams from the first round through the finals. I hope you enjoyed the competition and were able to find some time to take advantage of all that New Orleans has to offer (well, maybe not all of it) during Mardi Gras.

Finally, congratulations to the winners of this year’s competition. As always, the winning brief will be published in The Sports Lawyers Journal. Here are the results:

The Winner of the 2010 Competition was: Loyola University New Orleans School of Law.

The Runner-Up: Southwestern University School of Law.

The best brief was submitted by: UC Hastings College of the Law.


As the faculty advisor for three championship teams and one finalist team at Loyola New Orleans, I want to congratulate the champions of this year's event. I have great memories of participating in this tournament that is so well organized and run at Tulane. I am also proud of the Notre Dame team that participated this year. Thanks, Gabe, for the post, and to all of the Tulane students that put in all of the time and effort to make this such a great competition each year.
