Suit vs. ACC Dismissed

In a Connecticut court, Judge Sferrazza dismissed all claims against ACC schools in the Big East suit (over conference realingment) filed by Connecticut AG Richard Blumenthal. Good.

Sports are highly visible in our world. Politicians understand this, and have long tried to capture the benefits that come through media exposure associated with sports. Why do you think championship winners are routinely invited to the White House for photo ops?

I believe Connecticut AG Blumenthal sued people -- one of whom is my neighbor -- simply to gain media exposure. I'm glad he lost.
