At least one current player must be added to the NCAA student-athlete likeness antitrust litigation.
In the NCAA student-athlete likeness antitrust litigation I discussed at length elsewhere, the judge said at least one current player must join the lawsuit if the former players want current players certified as a class. It makes sense, because one of the basic requirements of class certification is that there are one or more members of that class when they seek class certification. Having a current player join the suit is not a sufficient condition for class certification, but it is necessary.
