One important feature of professional sports is the interdependence between the player, the team and the league. This interdependence helps make professional team sports wildly successful, but also creates a number of unique legal issues. One that has come up multiple times in recent years is the extent to which these interdependent entities must police and preserve each other's documents and information. This issue is not academic. To the contrary, the question of who legally controls which document has become increasingly important for various reasons. The first is the sheer amount of information created every day in this electronic age. Complicating that is the ongoing expansion of the rules governing legal discovery and information. And lastly is the fact that courts are demonstrating an increasing willingness to police these laws and punish, with monetary and other sanctions, the destruction or failure to preserve and produce information -- even if such destruction is … [Read more...] about Electronic Discovery in Pro Sports

Supported by ByErnesto Londoño and Shasta Darlington Nov. 20, 2018 RIO DE JANEIRO — The United States and Brazil have been uneasy allies during the best of times. But Brazilian voters may have put an end to that dynamic by electing as their next president Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right lawmaker who is unabashedly pro-American and strikingly similar to President Trump in temperament, tactics and style. “We might be on the verge of a golden era of relations,” said Fernando Cutz, a former senior White House official who worked on Latin America policy in the Obama and Trump administrations. “Trump and Bolsonaro will really hit it off. Their personalities are almost identical and their policy views are very … [Read more...] about U.S. and Brazil Chose Similar Leaders. It May Lead to Smoother Relations.
Who's First in Ownership of the "Sweet Spot" Remains UnclearBaseball is often called a "game of inches," whether one is describing the strike zone, a close play at the plate, or a liner past third base that just kicks up the chalk to stay fair. Indeed, hitting is truly about inches. Pitchers try to locate their pitches on the edges of the plate or have them run just out of the strike zone to prevent the batter from making contact with the "sweet spot" of the bat – a ball struck just off the main part of barrel might result in a soft fly to shortstop, while the same swing where the ball contacts the sweet spot of the bat might result in a smash to the outfield gap. In wooden bats, the sweet spot is generally located in the area above the manufacturer's label, about 5-7 inches from the end of the barrel (essentially, the node on the bat that results in minimal vibration when striking a ball).

To understand why the NFL will be irreparably harmed if Governor Chris Christie’s play to establish legal sports betting in New Jersey is successful, it helps to look at the traditional difference between betting on horse racing and betting on other sports such as NFL football.A window to place bets exists at the track and wagering is an on-site part of the event. A person attending a horse race that makes a bet is not just a spectator watching the race. Rather, such a person is a participant who is involved in the race through the placing of the wager. His or her money runs with the horse carrying the bet.In economic growth terms, betting in horse racing has grown endogenously, which means betting as grown from the inside—the horse racing event itself—to the outside—the simulcasting of races at one track at off-site tracks, sports books and other venues and the sharing of the commissions generated by wagering at these off-site venues by states, tracks, and … [Read more...] about Betting on the NFL Goes on Trial (Part 3)
