    That's the only way that he could get the ticketholders in.  Would he serve as the named defendant?  If the funds came from somewhere other than season ticket holders, he could win and end up with nothing, because the ticketholders weren't damaged financially.  The secondary effects?  Maybe, but a further stretch than I'm familiar with in the case law.

    •  it doesn't have to be a class action, (0+ / 0-)

      but what he'd gain in antitrust standing, since there is at least a claim of particularized harm (they paid face value, and the NCAA reduced the real value of the tickets by restricting the scholarships, etc. -- by the NCAA"s anticompetitive action, they pay the same for less), I imagine he'd lose in antitrust injury.  This is not the sort of harm the antitrust laws are designed to prevent.  Overall competition in the college football market isn't hurt, just one program, and that program had it coming.

      maybe Corbett is just trying to find a way to get away with cutting $60 million from higher ed funding.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
