Our terrific set of panelists will discuss a myriad of antitrust and consumer protection issues, including: recent Section 1 lawsuits against MLB; issues surrounding fantasy gaming; an ongoing lawsuit against UNC and the NCAA for academic fraud; the status of the O’Bannon v. NCAA case; and controversy surrounding the safety of hockey helmets. Don’t miss it!
