O’Bannon Can Add Current Student Athlete to NCAA Lawsuit

Ed O’Bannon, the college basketball player of the year in 1995, won court permission to add a current student athlete to his antitrust lawsuit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken in Oakland, ruled today in a one-page order that the former University of California, Los Angeles forward “may add a new named plaintiff who is a current student-athlete” to the case. The filing doesn’t identify the athlete.
