AmLaw Names Michael Hausfeld Litigator of the Week in the Wake of O’Bannon Trial Victory; Law360 Ranks NCAA Trial Team Among Legal Lions

AmLaw has named Michael Hausfeld and other members of the O'Bannon v. NCAA trial team Litigators of the Week after a complete bench trial victory last week, detailed in a 99-page decision from the Court. Declaring it "a landmark ruling," AmLaw noted that the decision "pave[s] the way for college athletes to share in the revenue they generate" and "bolsters the consensus among courtroom observers that Michael Hausfeld and Boies Schiller's William Isaacson got the best of a parade of NCAA witnesses at trial."

Law360, meanwhile, ranked Hausfeld's trial team among its Legal Lions, reporting that "[l]awyers for a group of college athletes did the end zone dance with a California federal ruling that the National Collegiate Athletic Association's rules preventing them from being paid for the use of their names and likenesses violate antitrust laws. The judge's injunction against the rules also included a recommendation that the NCAA colleges up their scholarships and stipends to cover college athletes' full cost of attending school."
