QUOTE: Across the country, dozens of lawsuits against generic pharmaceutical companies are being dismissed because of a Supreme Court decision last year that said the companies did not have control over what their labels said and therefore could not be sued for failing to alert patients about the risks of taking their drugs. Now, what once seemed like a trivial detail — whether to take a generic or brand-name drug — has become the deciding factor in whether a patient can seek legal recourse from a drug company.
New York Times May 22, 2011 Born on Sideline, Cheering Clamors to Be Sport
QUOTE: Why should cheerleading not be considered a sport when it required a complex set of technical skills, physical fitness and real guts? Now, in a development that may settle the debate, two groups are asking the National Collegiate Athletic Association to recognize a new version of cheerleading as an “emerging sport” for women, a precursor to full status as a championship sport.
New York Times May 01, 2011 Colleges Cut Men’s Programs to Satisfy Title IX
QUOTE: [the University of Delaware] did not make the argument that it needed to cut the team to immediately comply with the law...officials say they are ending the track program, which has its 100th anniversary this year, out of concern that they could not remain compliant in the future. Now, members of the men’s track team have taken an unusual step of their own: they have filed a complaint with the federal Office for Civil Rights, which oversees Title IX...
New York Times Apr 25, 2011 College Teams, Relying on Deception, Undermine Gender Equity
QUOTE: As women have surged into a majority on campus in recent years, many institutions have resorted to subterfuge to make it look as if they are offering more spots to women… Many are padding women’s team rosters with underqualified, even unwitting, athletes.
New York Times Jul 15, 2009 Florida Drops Budget Plan That Favored Prep Football
QUOTE: But under threat of a federal lawsuit, officials in Florida on Wednesday abandoned scheduling cuts to other sports. The lawsuit argued that exempting football was a violation of the gender-equity law known as Title IX. Opponents of the scheduling, which also excluded competitive cheerleading, complained that it disproportionately favored boys: about 40,400 male football players were unaffected by the cuts, compared with about 5,500 female cheerleaders.
New York Times Jun 29, 2009 Players’ Privacy Law Is Brought Into Question
QUOTE: Universities that deny requests for records about athletes may be interpreting too broadly a federal education law that protects the privacy of students’ academic records, a federal education official said Monday....Universities’ use of the federal privacy law to deny information requests has long frustrated journalists and other free-press advocates, who say it was never intended to be broadly interpreted when it was passed 35 years ago.

New York Times Jan 19, 2009 Player’s Death Revives Debate on Fighting in Hockey
QUOTE: Although common in professional hockey — the N.H.L. metes out five-minute major penalties to players who throw punches and an extra two-minute penalty for instigating a fight — fighting occurs much less frequently in international and amateur play. Fighting is also uncommon during the Stanley Cup playoffs, when the stakes are too high to squander a roster spot on a player whose main role is to fight.
New York Times Jan 12, 2008 On Texting, a Question of Access or Invasion
QUOTE: Beginning in August 2007, the N.C.A.A. banned Division I colleges from using text messaging to recruit athletes, citing complaints from students that the practice was driving up cellphone bills and intruding on personal time.
