Call For Judges: Mardi Gras Moot Court

Each year, the Tulane Moot Court Board, in conjunction with the Tulane Sports Lawyers' Journal, hosts the Mardi Gras Sports Law Competition, an appellate competition focusing on sports-law related topics.  Teams representing 32 ABA-accredited law schools from across the nation will compete in this exciting and unique appellate competition, the only one of its kind in the nation devoted entirely to topics related to the practice of sports law.

This year's competition runs from February 15th through the 17th. We are currently seeking members of the bar to assist in judging the competition. If you will be in New Orleans on the above date, have a law degree, and would like to be a judge, please contact Andrew Sensi (asensi@tulane.edu).

This year's problem, based on the recent litigation surrounding the NFL and NBA lockouts, asks (1) whether the Norris-LaGuardia Act prohibits district courts from issuing an injunction to enjoin a league lockout, and (2) whether a sports league's lockout is protected from antitrust scrutiny by the nonstatutory labor exemption.
Past topics include: sports lotteries, whether a sports league is a single entity when collectively licensing and marketing team and league trademarks, fantasy football and the right of publicity, and whether age restrictions by professional sports leagues violate section one of the Sherman Act.

For more information please see the Tulane Moot Court Board's website. (http://www.law.tulane.edu/tlsOrgs/mootcourt/index.aspx?id=5054)
