EA And Student-Athletes Reach Preliminary Settlement In NCAA Likeness Case

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

The student-athletes who appeared in Electronic Arts college sports games without any compensation could be getting a payday. According to law firm Hagens Berman, who is representing the student-athletes, 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.”
