Note: You can read Part I here. Continuing the discussion on the U.S. Soccer Federation’s motion to dismiss the complaint filed by the North American Soccer League in New York alleging […]
Note: I’m going to end up breaking this up into two parts: The Facts (Part I) and the Law (Part II). There are seemingly more lawsuits than professional leagues in […]
I decided that reading 400 pages of legal documents wasn’t a fun use of my evening. So: Wednesday night soccer! The great thing about lower division soccer is not being […]
Well, that’s the last time I mock soccer and/or legal gods. The deadline was today for the US Soccer Federation to file their responsive documents in the New York State lawsuit filed by […]
It seems we can’t go more than a few days without drama in United States Soccer. With prospective cities dropping out of the running left and right to be hosts for the 2026 […]
I’m not going through the entire thing, but since I’m a Seattle guy, I filtered out the major Seattle portions of the bid book. No word if the bid includes the […]

Off the legal track for a minute, but it looks like there are some changes in store for the 2018 US Open Cup. The piddly prize amounts have been raised […]
This is a bit unexpected, though maybe not completely surprising. And things will probably change right as I publish this. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said on Counter Attack last […]
Here is a picture of a Prince cover band performing at a race track in Auburn, Washington I saw last night. It went about as you’d expect.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine appeared on Counter Attack with Brian Dunseth and Tony Meola Thursday to discuss the lawsuit filed by the City of Columbus and the State of Ohio to preclude the […]
Much like the CSI enterprise, with multiple franchises littered throughout the television landscape, there are no shortage of lawsuits involving US Soccer. The New York case, filed by the NASL in New York State Court, alleges that the members of the US Soccer Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties, based on their actions allegedly conspiring to favor USL at the expense of […]
