First, I'll note that In February, the Sackos lawsuit was thrown out of court.
In a February 16, 2016 decision, the court disagreed and dismissed all claims against Penn with prejudice after deciding that there were insufficient facts to establish an employer-employee relationship. The court also dismissed the claims against the NCAA and other college and university defendants without prejudice because the complaint, as amended, did not sufficiently allege an employer-employee relationship with any defendant other than Penn for the court to have jurisdiction under the FLSA.
I'm disappointed. I'm not sure how it could be that there were "insufficient facts" but I haven't yet read the decision to be able to comment on the court's reasoning.
