National Collegiate Athletic Association v Yeo 171 SW3d 863 Tex 2005

In a case involving a collegiate athlete?s eligibility to participate in a swimming competition, persuaded the Texas Supreme Court to expressly disapprove of the lower courts? conclusion that the NCAA had no right to intervene in the litigation; the opinion significantly strengthened the NCAA?s hand in ensuring that its interests and the interests of its member-institutions are protected in athlete eligibility litigation across the country.
