NCAA asks Supreme Court for emergency action in athlete compensation case

The NCAA is asking the Supreme Court to freeze a lower court ruling that allows colleges to compensate athletes for educated-related expenses.

A panel of judges on the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled earlier this year that the NCAA violated federal antitrust law when barring some expenditures. The ruling is set to go into effect on August 11.
The case is the latest dispute between those who believe that schools should be able to decide for themselves how to compensate their athletes against the NCAA, which says such efforts could blur the line between college and professional sports.
In 2016, the Supreme Court let stand an opinion that said the NCAA could not limit schools from giving scholarship funds including costs of attendance at schools.
