You’ve gone and done pissed off the NCAA into counting a few chickens that haven’t hatched yet.
If the NCAA prevails in an lawsuit pertaining to the use of college athletes’ names and likenesses, it could take what it says is an usual (sic) step in anti-trust cases: It may try to recover millions of dollars in legal expenses from the plaintiffs’ lead law firm, the NCAA’s chief legal officer told USA TODAY Sports on Friday…
“Ordinarily, successful antitrust defendants do not recover fees. Here, the unfounded change in the theory may result in the NCAA seeking its fees from the Hausfeld firm,” NCAA executive vice president and general counsel Donald Remy said via e-mail.
Shockingly, plaintiff’s counsel had no response. I guess that means they’re not dismissing their claim.
