Has-beens Cash In?

Attorney Megan Jones is representing plaintiffs in a class action suit against the National Collegiate Athletic Association in which Ed O’Bannon, the former UCLA power forward who won his team the NCAA Championship in 1995, is the main plaintiff.

The rest of the class members are also former NCAA athletes who are suing in the Northern District of California to recover money made from their images being used in video games. Normally, adults who played sports as college students are not allowed to be compensated for their playing.

Ms. Jones believes the case may take up to two years to settle but may eventually fetch tens of millions of dollars in damages.
