NCAA reaches $20 million settlement with players in video game suit
Monday, June 09, 2014 1:30 PM
Side note, the Ed O'Bannon anti-trust case began today.
The NCAA said the settlement will award $20 million to various Division I football and men's basketball players who attended certain universities during the years the games were sold. The settlement, pending approval from a judge, would end the litigation brought by former Arizona State and Nebraska quarterback Sam Keller over the use of college athletes' names, images and likenesses in video games. The case had been scheduled for trial in March 2015.
EA Sports previously settled with the players for $40 million. The question now becomes whether the games will ever be made again and how the money would be distributed to future players.
