Timothy Liam Epstein, Chair of SmithAmundsen’s Sports Law Practice Group, was recently quoted in ESPN The Magazine’s latest issue. The article, “Now Playing: After a Highly Publicized Nine-Game Suspension, a Top Frosh Attraction is Finally on the Court,” by Elena Bergeron is to be published on January 10, 2011. When asked about the matter’s legal aspects, Timothy commented, “When you're dealing with article 12 [the NCAA bylaw that regulates benefits to recruits], there are so many things that would be outside of an institution's control.” Timothy serves as counsel for permanently ineligible Kentucky recruit Enes Kanter and is an adjunct professor of sports and entertainment law at Loyola University Chicago.
