I’ve gotten a number of inquiries this week about the Andy Oliver trial, so here’s a quick update. Oliver’s side rested its case Wednesday and survived the NCAA’s motion to dismiss, as the court ruled that the plaintiffs had introduced "competent credible evidence" to support their claims. The NCAA starts its case today, there is a break Friday, and the NCAA has said it can conclude its case by Monday, according to Oliver attorney Richard Johnson. He also indicated that the judge might issue his ruling on Oliver’s injunctive claim to restore his eligibility on Monday, or he might take the issue under advisement and issue a ruling sometime later. We should also learn Monday when the jury portion of the trial (to hear Oliver’s monetary claims against the NCAA) will be scheduled.
