Onyshko v. NCAA: NCAA’s Motion for Summary Judgment Denied

Originally published by Christian Dennie.

In June 2014, Matthew Onyshko and his wife (individually and collectively “Athlete”) filed a two-count Complaint alleging negligence and loss of consortium against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”) based on its alleged failure to adequately supervise, regulate, and minimize the risk of long-term brain injury resulting from repeated head impacts.  Athlete contended that these failures increased Athlete’s risk of developing long-term health conditions when, as a California University of Pennsylvania (“University”) student-athlete, he relied upon the NCAA to protect his health and safety.  This action is based on Athlete recently being diagnosed with brain and spinal cord injuries he attributed to repeated blows to his head suffered during his five-year collegiate football career at University between 1999 and 2003.
