Friday round-up


  • The long-running dispute over compensation for college athletes is back at the Supreme Court. CNN’s Ariane de Vogue reports that the NCAA filed an emergency request on Thursday asking the justices to issue a stay of a lower court’s ruling that allows colleges to give student-athletes money for computers, study-abroad scholarships and other academic products and services. “The case,” de Vogue writes, “is the latest dispute between those who believe that schools should be able to decide for themselves how to compensate their athletes against the NCAA, which says such efforts could blur the line between college and professional sports.”
