Timothy Liam EPSTEIN offers his insight on the recent ruling denying St. Paul’s request for a federal injunction against the new AHSAA competitive balance ruling.

A high school sports reporter for the Alabama Media Group, Mr. Ben Thomas, quoted Timothy Liam EPSTEIN in his May 25th, 2018 article regarding St. Paul’s lawsuit against the AHSAA.  Since then, U.S. District judge William H. Steele has issued an order denying St. Paul’s request for a federal injunction against the new AHSAA competitive balance ruling. Mr. Thomas followed up with Mr. EPSTEIN for his insight on the ruling in his latest article entitled, “St. Paul’s will play its 2018 football season as scheduled despite judge’s ruling.”

"Timothy Epstein, an attorney for Chicago-based Duggan Bertsch, LLC., called Judge Steele’s ruling “predictable” and said organizations like the AHSAA need to crack down on impermissible recruiting rather than focusing on penalizing success of private school teams."

A high school sports reporter for the Alabama Media Group quotes Timothy Liam EPSTEIN in his article entitled, "Does St. Paul's suit against the AHSAA have a chance succeed?

"Now that there is an increased focus on player safety with concussion protocols in place for various professional leagues and the NCAA as well as some high school associations, you really can't justify putting some of these Goliaths up against smaller private schools," said Epstein, whose law expertise includes multipliers and similar measures in high school sports. "The fact that Alabama has a success formula on top of a multiplier - it's not legally justifiable. The success formula - in addition to the multiplier - simply does not pass constitutional muster as far as equal protection goes."

The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin Published Timothy Liam EPSTEIN'S Article Entitled, "Parochial school looks to even the playing field over conference rule."

A lawsuit filed recently in the Southern District of Alabama could have national effects on the way private and public high school sports teams compete against each other in the future.

A few weeks ago, St. Paul’s Episcopal School in Mobile, Ala., filed suit seeking an injunction to stop a new rule that forces it to play in a larger conference. St. Paul’s Episcopal School v. Alabama High School Athletic Association, et al., No. CV-18-241 (S.D. Ala. Filed May 24, 2018).
