No reinstatement for Oregon wrestling

A judge in Marian County, Oregon denied the request by the University of Oregon men's wrestling team to reinstate the program until the team goes before a court in September to state its case (which is being presented by Equity in Athletics Oregon).
When the judge issued his ruling against an injunction to reinstate the program, he noted that it was largely due to the time between when the announcement of the cut was made and when the team filed its request: about a year. But, he also noted, the denial is not an indication of what will happen when the merits of the case are presented in the fall.
