Judge issues an injunction against the NCAA’s enforcement of NIL rules

The judge overseeing the lawsuit filed against the NCAA by the State of Tennessee has issued an injunction against the NCAA preventing them from actively enforcing rules restricting NIL for their players.

Additionally, the judge has also forbidden the NCAA from retroactively punishing any athletes, boosters, or collectives who exercise NIL privileges during the injunction should the NCAA’s NIL rules ultimately be upheld by the courts.
