Dawson v. NCAA and Pac-12 Conference: Motion to Dismiss Granted

Originally published by Christian Dennie.

Lamar Dawson (“Dawson”), a former University of Southern California football student-athlete, filed suit against the NCAA and Pac-12 Conference (collectively “Defendants”). In the suit, Dawson sought unpaid wages, including unpaid overtime compensation and interest thereon, required minimum wage payments, waiting time penalties, liquidated damages and other penalties, injunctive and other equitable relief and reasonable attorneys’ fees pursuant to claims for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, California Labor Code, California Code of Regulations, and California Business and Professions Code. The Defendants moved to dismiss Dawson’s complaint and Judge Richard Seeborg of the United States District Court, Northern District of California granted Defendants’ motion to dismiss and determined that the legal theories sought by Dawson were untenable, thus amendment would be futile.
