NCAA athletes win 9-0 on educational perks as Kavanaugh calls out ban on direct payments

The Supreme Court on Monday reshaped the relationship between universities and the athletes who play college sports. In an opinion by Justice Neil Gorsuch, the justices unanimously ruled that the National Collegiate Athletic Association cannot prohibit its member schools from providing athletes with certain forms of education-related benefits, such as paid post-graduate internships, scholarships for graduate school, or free laptops or musical instruments. Although the decision did not involve c...

Justices dismiss challenge to “remain in Mexico” policy

On a day on which the court issued major rulings on college sports and securities law, the order list from the justices’ private conference last week made less of a splash on Monday morning. The court did not add any new cases to its docket for the fall, but it did ask the federal government to weigh in on a state supreme court’s interpretation of a federal regulation – a move that could put a potential successor to Justice Stephen Breyer in the spotlight. And in a separate order issued later o...

Supreme Court's NCAA ruling is not nearly enough

The court's backing education-related payments to student athletes is long-overdue, but hardly enough to expect from the billion dollar NCAA, writes Jeff Pearlman, which is engaged in a scam; taking young men and women—many of whom are Black and brown--for all they're worth. Athletes deserve a salary that directly correlates to the financial benefits they provide a school.

Whicker: Want an NCAA revolution? The Supreme Court is here to help

Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not have to write a thing. The Supreme Court had already spoken, in 9-0 unanimity. It upheld a district court’s decision in NCAA v. Alston that barred the NCAA from limiting the money an athlete could receive from a college for education-related purposes. It was another paper cut, another hatchet chop against the bloated business of intercollegiate athletics. Then Kavanaugh brought the chainsaw. He wrote a concurring opinion that immediately becomes the bigg...

State Government’s Alleged Copyright Infringement Wasn’t a “Taking”–Jim Olive v. University of Houston (Guest Blog Post)

by guest blogger Tyler Ochoa Last week, the Texas Supreme Court held that “the violation of a copyright, without more, is not a taking of the copyright,” and affirmed the dismissal of Olive’s inverse condemnation claim. UH allegedly downloaded Olive’s photograph from his website, removed the CMI, and posted it to its website. When Olive discovered the removal years later, UH complied with his demand to cease and desist, but he sued for damages anyway. Because he could not sue in federal court (u...

Justices scale back “unreviewable authority” of administrative patent judges

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that more than 200 administrative patent judges in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office must be subject to greater supervision by the agency director in order to comply with the Constitution’s appointments clause. The decision in United States v. Arthrex, Inc. was fragmented. The court ruled 5-4 that the level of authority exercised by the patent judges is incompatible with the Constitution because the patent judges are not nominated by the president and confirmed...

Patents are Political

By Dennis Crouch I have been repeating this mantra for quite a while – patents are political. In US v. Arthrex, the Supreme Court added an exclamation point.  By design, the US governmental system places presidential political appointees at the top of each executive agency, including the US Patent & Trademark Office so that the US President can then be held directly accountable for the successes and failures.  Note here that the accountability we’re talking about is political accountability. The...

Supreme Court unanimously sides with ex-athletes in NCAA compensation case

WASHINGTON — In a ruling that could help push changes in college athletics, the Supreme Court on Monday unanimously ruled that the NCAA can’t enforce certain rules limiting the education-related benefits — things like computers and graduate scholarships — that colleges offer athletes. The case doesn’t decide whether students can be paid salaries. Instead, the ruling will help determine whether schools decide to offer athletes tens of thousands of dollars in those benefits for things including tu...

In 1852, students from Harvard and Yale participated in what many regard as the Nation’s first intercollegiate competition—a boat race at Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.

The Supreme Court on Monday sent a shareholder class-action lawsuit against Goldman Sachs back to a lower court for a closer look at whether alleged misstatements by the bank were too general to have affected its stock price.

Arkansas Teacher Retirement System, the court held that defendants in securities cases can rebut the presumption that class-based adjudication is appropriate by showing that the challenged statements were so generic that they would ...
