O'Bannon in the Supreme Court
2 PM EDT
On September 30, 2015 the Ninth Circuit issued its decision in O'Bannon. The Court concluded “the NCAA’s rules have been more restrictive than necessary to maintain its tradition of amateurism in support of the college sports market." But the Court overturned the part of the district court’s injunctive relief that required the NCAA to allow its member schools to pay student-athletes up to $5,000 per year in deferred compensation. Both Plaintiffs and the NCAA have petitioned for certiorari. The panelists will address the dueling petitions and debate whether amateurism is susceptible to the Rule of Reason, and, if so, how that analysis should be applied.
