Ruling Keeps NCAA From Limiting Some Athlete Compensation
WASHINGTON (AP) — A court decision the NCAA says will hurt college sports by allowing student-athletes to be paid “vast sums” of money will go into effect. That's after the Supreme Court declined Tuesday to intervene at this point. Justice Elena Kagan denied the NCAA’s request to put a lower court ruling on hold at least temporarily while the NCAA asks the Supreme Court to take up the case. In May, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld a lower-court ruling prohibiting the NCAA from limiting compensation for education-related expenses for student-athletes.
