UofL supporters plan to file lawsuit against NCAA for 2013 title

A group of UofL supporters are set to sue the NCAA for taking the 2013 title banner away from the school.

Because of course.

The University of Louisville Protection and Advocacy Committee (U of L PAC), led by founder Anthony Cotton, plans to file a lawsuit against the NCAA “as soon as next week”

The end goal? Reinstatement of vacated wins, financial reimbursement, and the title banner hanging back up in the Yum! Center.

U of L PAC attorney Robert Florio said he will file a lawsuit in Jefferson County Circuit Court against the NCAA on Wednesday seeking the reinstatement of wins the Louisville men’s basketball team has vacated and repayment of financial damages, the amount of which Florio did not specify.

The attorney is alleging arbitrary and capricious conduct and breach of contract.

“It’s in the final stages right now,” Florio said. “I’ve identified all the causes of action … and I’ve also identified several legal theories that give fans standing against the NCAA, which is one of the biggest challenges in this lawsuit.”

The best part of the story? The press conference was held outside a bar in Louisville, where a 2013 replica banner hangs on the brick wall outside. They have officially opened the company for donations, where support is already pouring in.

“Anthony Cotton… said Friday afternoon during a press conference at the Taj Louisville bar that the group has filed for incorporation status so that it can begin taking donations. Cotton said he has received one contribution totaling $5 so far.”

Five whole dollars. Don’t spend it all in one place.

    Bravo for UofL. After the biggest cheater in the history of the NCAA walked on October 13, 2017, I believe UofL should have told the NCAA to stick it when they told them their penalties. I think any school that is accused or has penalties down from the NCAA should say, when you punish the biggest cheater of all time, then come back and we talk.

    I hope UofL wins this. Screw the NCAA.

      Two wrongs don’t make a right. The right thing would be for the FBI to investigate the NCAA for racketeering.

    If Louisville should win this case then every decision the NCAA has made the last several years should be challenged in the courts. As much as I hate U of L , I hope they win. The NCAA should be abolished.

    Only real question is, AFTER this case is removed to federal court, will it get dismissed immediately in the Western District of Kentucky, or will it get transferred to a proper venue and THEN dismissed?

      This can’t be emphasized enough. They were prostitutes, not merely strippers.

    What sad and pathetic lives these people have. This is what they choose to invest time, energy and money on. Of course, the lawyer is laughing all the way to the bank.
    Players declared ineligible, wins are forfeited. Has happened many times. Just so happens this time, it included the national title. Nothing unprecedented has occurred.

    Reading these comments, I wanted to clear one thing. The University of Louisville is NOT doing this. A few random fans are doing this with a rogue lawyer. Even if this EVER gets to an actual real court, it will not affect the NCAA investigation/ruling or the FBI ruling.

    That is FBI investigation…not ruling 🙂

    Apparently, it is possible to find a lawyer who will file a lawsuit against the sun for rising in the east.

    I was across the street from Taj yesterday getting some food from the always delish Royals Hot Chicken and saw the banner and like 3 people standing there with a camera. I was wondering what the hell they were doing, figured it was a Facebook video or something considering the very few people there. The lack of people was sort of impressive on its own really when you consider it was one of the nicer days we’ve had yesterday so that Nulu area was generally packed, just not for them I guess

    Capricious? Maybe their lawyer is thinking of his ex-girlfriend.
