BSF Sues NCAA on Behalf of Former Student Athletes


BSF partners Bill Isaacson and Tanya Chutkan are part of a team of lawyers suing the NCAA over their practice of requiring student athletes to surrender their rights to commercial use of their images.  The suit alleges that the NCAA’s actions have resulted in millions of dollars in profits to the NCAA and its licensing divisions.  The case, brought on behalf of a class of former student athletes, is led by former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon.
