NCAA applies for extension in O’Bannon case

“The NCAA has requested a 30-day extension to file a petition for review of the O’Bannon case with the United States Supreme Court. During this time, we will continue to assess our legal options, including preparing for the possibility that plaintiffs will seek further review. We continue to maintain that the NCAA operates well within antitrust laws, but we also agree with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ recognition that benefits to student-athletes should be tethered to higher education.” – Donald Remy, NCAA chief legal officer
