Ed O's suit moves along


The NY Times reported this morning that Ed O'Bannon and his legal team have been granted the right to look through NCAA documents pertaining to the amount of money the organization makes from the sweat of the unpaid athletes.  While Ed O appears mainly to address the notion of using his image and that of others in promotional films after they've long since graduated, the suit opens up a pretty big can of worms, including some antitrust issues.

I'm not an attorney, so I welcome comments from the many members of the Bar who frequent these posts.  It's interesting that Bruins always seem to be out front when it comes to issues like these, following in the footsteps of their role models.
