Rutgers Hoopster Moore Among Four To File Antitrust Suit Against NCAA

Rutgers Hoopster Moore Among Four To File Antitrust Suit Against NCAA
BY JERRY MILANI
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Johnathan 'J.J.' Moore, who recently completed his senior season as the third-leading scorer on the Rutgers basketball team, is party to a lawsuit in which he and three other college athletes contend that the NCAA is "a 'cartel' that generates billions of dollars in revenue and illegally caps the pay of student athletes,' as summarized in an article by Bloomberg's Scott Sochnick today.

The suit was filed in federal court in Trenton, and follows up on other recent cases making the news. Those include one brought by former UCLA superstar Ed O'Bannon and others against the NCAA and Electronic Arts, publisher of a popular video game which used player likenesses, another by former West Virginia gridder Shawne Alston, who claims student athletes' scholarships are unfairly limited, and a third by Northwestern Univ. football players filing a grievance with the National Labor Relations Board regarding employment status.
