NCAA seeks dismissal of scholarship cases

Statement from Donald Remy, NCAA chief legal officer

 “The NCAA and the co-defendant member conferences filed their response in support of their motion to dismiss the Jenkins, Alston and related cases. The filing outlines the flaws and implausibility of the plaintiffs’ case. Under the plaintiffs’ theory, the Court’s own injunction in the O’Bannon decision is an antitrust violation.  The O’Bannon and other federal court decisions, however, confirm what the NCAA and its members have said all along – agreeing to appropriate limits on financial aid to student-athletes does not violate antitrust laws.”
