Judge sets hearing for motion to dismiss Husker players’ lawsuit against Big Ten

The hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 25.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A judge has set a date for a hearing to determine whether a lawsuit brought against by the Big Ten Conference by several Husker football players should be dismissed.

The hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 25.

Filed late last month, the lawsuit was brought in hopes that the conference could be legally forced to reinstate a fall football season.

Players included as plaintiffs in the lawsuit are Brant and Brig Banks, Alante Brown, Noa Pola-Gates, Jackson Hannah, Garrett Nelson, Ethan Piper and Garrett Snodgrass.

The Big Ten, which announced Aug. 11 it would postpone the fall football season, said previously the lawsuit “has no merit.”
