If you like Civil Procedure and college football, you might want to check out Howard Wasserman's post over at the Sports Law Blog about whether new Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez properly removed the lawsuit against him brought by his former employer, West Virginia University. Also, you might want to check out Frank DeFord's piece on what should happen when college football coaches leave a school before finishing out their contracts.--Counseller
UPDATE: According to this ESPN article, Rich Rodriguez has made a $1.5 million settlement offer. In response to the offer, an attorney for WVU said, "the University has lived up to all its obligations under the contract, and the university expects him to live up to the $4 million that is owed." I suspect this case will be difficult to settle.
