INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- NCAA attorneys have taken the first step in trying to overturn the ruling in the Ed O'Bannon case by notifying the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that it intends to appeal.
Chief legal officer Donald Remy issued a statement Thursday, less than 24 hours after the papers were filed, saying the NCAA does not believe it violated antitrust laws.
A formal appeal has not yet been submitted.
U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled Aug. 8 that the NCAA violated antitrust laws by restricting schools from providing money beyond current scholarship limits to athletes. She said schools should be allowed to place up to $5,000 per year of competition into a trust fund for individual football players and men's basketball players, which they could collect after leaving school.
