NCAA v. Board of Regents, 463 U.S. 1311 (1983)

National Collegiate Athletic Association v.

Board of Regents of University of Oklahoma

No. A-24.

Decided July 21, 1983

463 U.S. 1311


An application by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, whose membership includes many colleges, universities, and athletic conferences, to stay the judgments of the Court of Appeals and the District Court is granted, pending the timely filing and disposition of a petition for a writ of certiorari. The courts below, in an action brought by respondents against applicant, held that the antitrust laws were violated by applicant's plan involving contracts with certain television networks for the broadcasting of football games of applicant's members, and an injunction has been issued forbidding further implementation of the contracts. A stay is proper since it is likely that at least four Justices will vote to grant certiorari, there is a sufficient prospect that applicant will ultimately prevail, and the equities pending decision on the merits favor applicant.
