In re National Collegiate Athletic Association Grant-In-Aid Cap Antitrust Litigation

Additional Class Counsel Elizabeth Pritzker and Pritzker Levine represented college football and basketball players in an antitrust class-action lawsuit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the NCAA’s most powerful conference members, the Pac-12, Big Ten, Big-12, SEC and ACC, claiming that these entities have agreed in violation of antitrust laws to unlawfully cap the value of athletic scholarships.  Firm clients, Justine Hartman and Afure Jemerigbe, both former University of California-Berkeley college women’s basketball players, served as class representatives in the case. The case resulted in a $208 million class settlement for student-athletes.
