NCAA states it deals with $1.4 billion damages in antitrust claim it challenges

Lawyers for the NCAA and the country’s leading college conferences composed in legal filings Friday night that present and previous college professional athletes are looking for more than $1.4 billion in damages in an antitrust claim that is challenging the association’s staying guidelines concerning professional athletes’ capability to earn money from their names, images and similarities.

The filings did not define whether that figure considers the tripling of damages awards that takes place in effective antitrust cases. If it does not, then more than $4.2 billion might be at stake in the event.

The figure existed in the NCAA-and-conferences’ arguments to U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken that she must reject the professional athletes’ quote for class-action status for their damages claims. Legal representatives for the professional athletes officially looked for class accreditation in October in a demand that was partly redacted, and backed by reports from economists that were submitted under seal.
