Quinnipiac trial begins tomorrow

The trial in the Quinnipiac University volleyball case begins tomorrow in federal court in Connecticut. There is nothing new to report since last month's decision to grant class-action status to the case being brought by five volleyball players.
As a reminder, at issue is Quinnipiac's "roster management" practices which seemed--in the past at least--to under report the number of men playing sports and overinflate the number of women doing so--so much so that some of these squad sizes were not in compliance with NCAA regulations.
Also at issue is the addition of competitive cheer as a varsity sport.
We will be doing our best to keep the details of the trial coming. (There might even be a Title IX Blog field trip to Connecticut!)
