Pennsylvania Superior Court Revives Negligence Claim Against NCAA

(May 5, 2016, 9:28 AM EDT) -- HARRISBURG, Pa. — A Pennsylvania Superior Court panel on May 3 found that a trial court erred in dismissing claims against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) because a jury could find that the organization owed a duty to screen a student athlete for a potentially dangerous condition before he died; the panel remanded the suit for further proceedings (Jack Hill Sr., et al. v. Slippery Rock University, et al., No. 180-WDA-2015, Pa Super.; 2016 Pa. Super. LEXIS 252).
