Former Louisville Football Student-Athlete Files Suit Against Louisville and Charlie StrongJanuary 8, 2013
Senator Jake Corman will introduce legislation that will mandate that the NCAA’s $60 million fine be used to fund child sex abuse prevention programs in Pennsylvania. Additionally, Senator Corman has filed suit against the NCAA. The lawsuit claims “[e]ven though the NCAA intends to wrest such a large sum of Pennsylvania public funds, it has refused to submit to any control by Pennsylvania elected officials and refused to commit more than 25 percent of those public funds to Pennsylvania causes.” On both accounts, Senator Corman seeks some control over the use of funds used to pay the sanctions mandated by the NCAA. Look for the NCAA to defend the lawsuit and legislation on grounds similar to those explained in Miller v. NCAA in which the NCAA argued that it was a commerce clause violation to implement and enforce such legislation.
