Interstate competition: The Tipline for 15 June 2020
While most sports remain shut down in the US, Florida got a jump last week on the fierce competition between colleges for athletes. The state’s governor, Ron DeSantis, signed a law that allows college athletes to soon profit from use of their names, images, and likenesses. The law enters into force more than a year before similar laws in California and Colorado take effect. At the signing ceremony at the University of Miami, DeSantis said the new law makes any college in the state a “great landing spot” for top recruits. Game on. Also in today’s Tipline, we have a last-minute dispute between the Department of Justice and former Bumble Bee chief executive Christopher Lischewski over who can speak at tomorrow’s sentencing.
