American Needle v. NFL has been described by one sports periodical as arguably the most important sports law case in U.S. history — and one that could reshape how the NFL and other leagues conduct business.
Please join us for a Foley Executive Briefing Series program exploring the legal and practical factors the U.S. Supreme Court should consider as well as the potential ramifications of the Court's final decision.

The program will be presented by Foley Partner Jim McKeown, who submitted an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in the American Needle case on behalf of a group of nationally prominent economists. Mr. McKeown is a member of the Foley’s Litigation Department and heads the firm’s national Antitrust Practice. He was lead counsel for Major League Baseball Properties, Inc. in Major League Baseball Properties, Inc. v. Salvino, Inc. (an antitrust challenge to MLB's centralized promotion and licensing), and he has taught antitrust law and sports law at Marquette University Law School.

Sports, Antitrust, and the Supreme Court: How Should the Court Thread American Needle v. NFL? What Does It Mean for Non-Sports Businesses? is part of the Foley Executive Briefing Series. Learn more about programs in the series at Foley.com/FEBS.
