Morrissey Claims Win Over NCAA

May 31st, 2024 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey is claiming victory for those participating in college sports across the country.  A lawsuit against the NCAA had challenged the association’s Transfer Eligibility Rule.

The agreement, which must be approved by U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey, removes what the coalition views as an illegal restraint on student athletes to market their labor and control their education.

The lawsuit came after the NCAA denied RaeQuan Battle a transfer waiver allowing him to immediately play basketball for WVU.  A U.S. District Court for West Virginia temporarily ordered the NCAA to allow transferring students to participate in games through the end of this academic year.
