Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court holds that the NCAA's ticket-distribution plan does not constitute a lottery under IC 35-45-5-3
Today, in Tom George, et al. v. National Collegiate Athletic Association, a 15-page, 5-0 opinion, the Court gives its answer. Writing for the Court, the opinion by Justice Sullivan concludes:
We hold that the NCAA's ticket-distribution plan does not constitute a lottery under Indiana Code section 35-45-5-3 because there was no “prize” awarded to those whose offers to purchase tickets were randomly accepted by the NCAA.
