NCAA opposes class cert in antitrust suit

Athletes sued the organization for conspiring against them

Things are heating up between the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and some of its basketball and football players.

The case dates back to 2009, when current and former student athletes filed suit against the NCAA, claiming the association conspired against them in an effort not to pay them for their images and likenesses used in video games. The players asked for class action status, and last week, the NCAA filed court papers opposing certification of the class action.
