Report: Keise voluntarily dismisses claims against NCAA

Posted by: Joe Christensen under Gophers preseason practice, NCAA Updated: July 31, 2013 - 5:12 PM

Gophers wide receiver Victor Keise has voluntarily dismissed his claims against the NCAA, as part of Ed O'Bannon's lawsuit, according to AL.com, which received a copy of the court filing today. No reason was given for Keise's decision.

Gophers tight end Moses Alipate remains part of O'Bannon's lawsuit, along with four other active college players, but now Keise has been taken off that list. The players are challenging the NCAA's right to use their likenesses in video games.
