Attorneys representing uncompensated student-athletes in the case brought against Electronic Arts over their likeness are saying they are ready to approve a settlement.

This means the student-athletes who appeared in Electronic Arts college sports games without any compensation could be getting some overdue paychecks. According to law firm Hagens Berman, who is representing the student-athletes, depending on how things pan out, each student-athlete could receive up to $951 for each year they appeared in a video game.

Attorney Steve W. Berman wrote in a press release about the settlement, “We’re incredibly pleased with the results of this settlement and the opportunity to right a huge wrong enacted by the NCAA and EA against these players and their rights of publicity. We’ve fought against intense legal hurdles since filing this case in 2009 and to see this case come to fruition is a certain victory.” You can also see a video message from Hagens Berman covering the settlement by heading here.

The instant they get their money, the NCAA should declare them all ineligible because they are getting paid for something sport-related.


They won't, because the NCAA is already paying them, but it'd be funny if things actually worked how they say they do. I aint bothered
