Back in 2009, former UCLA basketball player Ed O’Bannon filed a lawsuit on behalf of the NCAA’s Division I players. O’Bannon challenged the NCAA’s use of the images of its former student athletes for commercial purposes. Later, District Judge Claudia Wilken found for O’Bannon stating that the NCAA’s rules violate antitrust laws.  However, on September 30, 2015, a three-judge panel upheld Judge Wilken’s ruling, but threw out the proposal that the NCAA should pay athletes $5,000 per year in deferred compensation.

On Lawyer 2 Lawyer host, J. Craig Williams joins Attorney Swathi Bojedla from Hausfeld Law firm and Attorney Scott D. Schneider from Fisher & Phillips LLP, as they take a look at O’Bannon v. NCAA, amateurism and anti-trust laws, the appeal and how this opinion will impact future cases.

Swathi Bojedla‘s career has spanned a wide range of practice areas at Hausfeld, focusing most notably on the Sports & Entertainment, Antitrust, and Mass Torts practice areas. Swathi is an O’Bannon case trial team member working alongside Attorney Michael Hausfeld, as well as a member of the firm’s appeal team.
