Sports Law Professor Comments in USA Today on Constitutionality of Steroid Testing

June 24, 2005

Tulane University Law Professor Gary Roberts was quoted in the June 23rd edition of USA Today about whether Congress could pass a law requiring steroid testing of major league baseball players.

While Congress is free to pass such a law, Roberts said, there could be  challenges on equal protection grounds.  According to Roberts,  such a law would put athletes in a special class in violation of their constitutional rights. 

"Congress can pass such a law," he told the paper. "The question is whether it has the political will and the votes to do so..The biggest impediment to getting a law passed will be turf wars between committees."
