NCAA Prepared to Fight 'All the Way to the Supreme Court' in Video Games Lawsuit

September 27, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

The NCAA is adamant that it will take the fight against lawsuits related to EA's college sports games all the way to the Supreme Court if it has to. Speaking to USA Today Sports, NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said that the organization is not afraid to go the distance and is ramping up its legal team:

"We're prepared to take this all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to," Donald Remy told USA TODAY Sports. "We are not prepared to compromise on the case."

Lawyers for video game manufacturer Electronic Arts this week filed petitions asking the high court to review lower court rulings in those cases. Related to that filing, Remy told the publication that the NCAA had retained the services of California-based firm of Munger, Tolles and Olson to handle trial work and has hired former U.S. solicitor Seth Waxman at Wilmer, Cutler, Pickering, Hale and Dorr, to handle appeals.

"This strategy has been discussed by all appropriate bodies and endorsed. The membership supports this handling of the case," Remy said.

What bothers me on this is how much the NCAA and various colleges make off these former students well telling these students well playing football they are not allowed to be compensated and have to follow strict rules well playing on these teams but The NCAA feels it can make money on these students and not spread the wealth here.
