CA judges rule NCAA cannot limit educational scholarships for college athletes
A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a decision in which U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken said last year that NCAA restrictions on education-related benefits violated federal antitrust law by reducing competition in college sports.
The NCAA currently allows colleges to give athletes scholarships for the full cost of attending college, including tuition, board and incidental expenses. The decision allows additional aid for education-related items such as computers, science equipment, musical instruments, internships and graduate school scholarships at other schools.
