White v. National Collegiate Athletic Association

Blecher Collins & Pepperman represented the student-athlete class against the NCAA in a certified, antitrust class action alleging that the NCAA violated the federal antitrust laws by restricting amounts of athletic-based financial aid. The NCAA settled and paid an additional $218 million for use by current student-athletes to cover the costs of attending college, paid $10 million to cover educational and professional development expenses for former student-athletes, and enacted new legislation to permit Division I institutions to provide year-round comprehensive health insurance to student-athletes.
