Wide World of Sports Law

At the start of a new semester, the news brings us a rich real world example of contracts, arbitration, and more in the form of Alex Rodriguez.  The Yankees play was recently suspended for 162 games, as reported by ESPN

An arbitrator found A-Rod violated both the Basic Agreement (a collective bargaining agreement) and the Joint Drug Agreement. Both agreements are available on the MBL site

A-Rod has appealed to federal court, and the complaint includes a copy of the arbitration panel's opinion.
