Supreme Court denies NCAA's attempt to halt 'likeness' settlement

The U.S. Supreme Court levied its latest decision in the on-going “player likeness” suit, denying the NCAA the right to intervene in settlement talks between former college athletes and EA Sports and the Collegiate Licensing Company. The athletes, led by former Arizona State quarterback Sam Keller, sued the NCAA, EA Sports as well as the CLC for using and profiting from their images. A federal appeals court sided with the plaintiffs and then EA Sports attempted to appeal with the Supreme Court. (CBS Sports)
