Law links

Jeff Standen, a professor of Law at Willamette University, has launched a new blog on sports law, "The Sports Law Professor." Jeff has an interesting post today on the reporters in the Balco case, who refuse to disclose the source of leaked grand jury testimony. I agree with Jeff here. I've no sympathy for guys who abuse the legal system - and may be party to a crime, if they solicited the leak - in order to advance their muckraking careers.

At the Sports Law Blog, Michael McCann has a sort of 'markets in everything post,' of the rather ugly variety. Michael discusses reports of adults who have paid little leaguers to bean opponents, and even teammates. Wow.

Finally, Juli Graber sends along a link to an interesting paper: "Striking Out 'Competitive Balance' In Sports, Antitrust And Intellectual Property" by Sahlil Mehra and T. Joel Zuercher. That's worth a look over the weekend. Enjoy the games!
