Lawyers representing former athletes who are challenging the National Collegiate Athletic Association's commercial use of their likenesses (for which the athletes receive no compensation) are trying to make sure that the association will not punish any current athletes who join the suit, USA Today reported. The lead lawyer in the antitrust suit send a letter asking the NCAA to stipulate that it would not retaliate if a current player is added to the suit, as a federal judge's ruling last week permitted. An NCAA lawyer told the newspaper that the association would never take action against an athlete for joining a legal matter against the association.
