More legal troubles

Sun., July 21, 2013

The NCAA says the safety of its student athletes is among its core principles. The college sports association responded to a lawsuit that challenges its handling of head injuries. Attorneys asked a federal judge Friday to let them expand the lawsuit to include thousands of plaintiffs. NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said the association “has been at the forefront of safety issues” through a combination of playing rules, equipment requirements and medical practices. Osburn said Saturday the NCAA does not believe the legal action is appropriate. The motion seeking class-action status was filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago. – AP
