Jenkins v. NCAA: Judge Wilken Denies the NCAA’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings

On August 5, 2016, in  Jenkins v. NCAA, Judge Claudia Wilken (also the judge in O’Bannon v. NCAA) entered an order denying the NCAA’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings. In Jenkins, the plaintiffs argue there are “restrictions on the compensation of student-athletes for their athletic performance.”  Relying on the Ninth Circuit’s language in O’Bannon that “compensation” must be “tethered to academics,” the NCAA moved for judgment on the pleadings in accordance with 12(c) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure by arguing that “offering [student-athletes] cash sum untethered to education expenses was not a less restrictive alternative to the NCAA’s current rules under the rule of reason."

The NCAA Committee on Infractions (“Committee” or “Panel”) recently issued its findings and found that the University of Missouri (“MU” or “Institution”) committed violations of NCAA legislation. A representative of the Institution's athletics interests had impermissible recruiting contacts with a men's basketball prospective student-athlete and provided impermissible inducements and extra benefits to other men's basketball student-athletes. Additionally, a different representative of the Institution's athletics interests provided impermissible benefits to men's basketball student-athletes when he provided discounted room rates at a resort to student-athletes and provided free meals to three members of one student-athlete’s family. The Institution also failed to monitor the men's basketball program. As a result, several men's basketball student-athletes competed while ineligible during the 2013-14 season. The Panel considered this case through the cooperative summary disposition process in which all parties agree to the primary facts, violations and violation levels as fully set forth in the summary disposition report (“SDR”). Because the Institution agreed to the violations and penalties, there is no opportunity to appeal.

The NCAA Committee on Infractions Has Spoken: Georgia Southern University

The NCAA Committee on Infractions (“Committee” or “Panel”) recently issued its findings and found that Georgia Southern University (“GSU” or “Institution”) committed violations of NCAA legislation. This case involved two academic violations at GSU. Both violations involved former institutional staff members who were expected to fulfill a role, at least in part, in ensuring academic integrity surrounding student-athletes. This case originated as a Summary Disposition Report (“SDR”). After consideration, however, the Panel rejected the SDR to further consider application of NCAA Bylaw 10 to the agreed-upon conduct. In this case, the Panel encountered the narrow interpretation in which the NCAA's legislative and charging bodies have taken with respect to analyzing academic misconduct violations. The Panel was also presented with a limited record in this case. Based on those factors, the Panel concluded that the institutional staff members provided impermissible academic assistance rather than having committed academic misconduct. All participating parties agreed violations were Level I, and the Panel concludes the same.
