Product Description

This popular Sports Law: Cases and Materials casebook is divided into three parts:

Part I focuses on legal issues arising out of amateur sports. Particular emphasis is placed on the roles, rules, and activities of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The issues addressed include amateur sports associations, gender equity in amateur athletics, and amateur sports and antitrust law.
Part II deals with legal issues in professional sports. The chapters in this part deal with professional sports leagues, labor relations and antitrust law, enforcement of sports contracts, representation of professional athletes, negotiation of sports contracts, and stadium and arena issues.
Part III presents issues which arise in both professional and amateur sports. The subjects analyzed include criminal liability of sports participants, tort issues, intellectual property issues, health and disability issues, drug testing, and Olympic and international sports rules and regulations.

Sports Law: Cases and Materials incorporates the very significant recently decided cases and trends. For example, in the state action context, the Supreme Court has determined that the typical high school athletic association is a state actor for constitutional law purposes. Brentwood, therefore replaces Louisiana High School Athletic Association. In a similar fashion, Earls supplants Vernonia in the drug-testing chapter. The authors have also used the Jeremy Bloom case, presented as a new problem in Chapter 4, as a vehicle to reevaluate whether the NCAA should continue to be immune from antitrust attacks by athletes. Likewise, injured sports fans may be on the brink of finding their way around the traditional assumption of the risk bar to recovery. This new development is explored in the torts and sports material.
