NCAA agrees to settle head injury suit for $70 million

By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) – The NCAA has agreed to settle a head injury lawsuit by providing $70 million for concussion testing and diagnosis of current and former student athletes in a move expected to change the way such injuries are handled at colleges nationwide, according to court documents filed in Chicago on Tuesday. The class-action agreement, if approved by a federal judge and class members, applies to student athletes in all sports who have played at NCAA member schools at any time in the past until 50 years in the future. The settlement does not include bodily injury claims, which plaintiff’s attorney Steve Berman said should be handled on an individual basis. “The whole goal of my clients is to change the way the NCAA handles concussions,” Berman said.

US judge approves LA Clippers sale to ex Microsoft CEO

Shelly Sterling is congratulated outside a Los Angeles courthouse on July 28, 2014 after a judge gives the go-ahead for the sale of the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve BallmerA US judge gave the go-ahead for the $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer, ruling that embattled owner Donald Sterling could not block the move. The ruling by California Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas on Monday came after a three-week trial pitting the 80-year-old Sterling — barred from the National Basketball Association for life for making racist remarks — against his estranged wife Shelly, who made the deal with Ballmer. Levanas said the sale could go forward immediately, even if Donald Sterling — who had challenged his wife's authority to sell the NBA franchise — appeals. Shelly Sterling negotiated the sale on behalf of the family trust, after Donald Sterling's position as co-trustee was terminated when two medical experts declared the billionaire real estate mogul mentally incompetent to handle trust affairs.
