Article by Tim Epstein Considers Athlete Recourse Against Governing Bodies
September 4, 2012

An article by Tim Epstein, Chair of the firm's Sports Law Practice Group, examines the challenges athletes and member organizations encounter when contesting penalties issued by their governing bodies. In this article, "A Myth of Fairness Exists in Sports World," Tim highlights multiple controversies to illustrate how ineffective most attempts for recourse become due to the voluntary nature of remaining regulated by these various bodies. Tim’s article contains references to the decisions administered in 2012 by the USADA, NFL and NCAA. This article explains how due process is executed differently for independent governing bodies than by a state actor. It can be found in the Tuesday, September 4, 2012 edition of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
