NCAA settles one lawsuit on paying student-athletes, battles another

For the first time, college athletes will be paid by the NCAA. The NCAA on Monday reached a settlement to pay $20 million to current and former major college football and men’s basketball players for using their likenesses in video games. Meanwhile, the trial in former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon’s lawsuit against the NCAA opened in Oakland, Calif. The case will determine whether NCAA rules will be changed to allow college athletes to profit from their names, images and likenesses.
