AG Morrisey files lawsuit against NCAA to challenge transfer rule

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has filed a lawsuit against the NCAA that challenges the association’s Transfer Eligibility Rule.

The lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia Clarksburg Division, comes on the heels of the NCAA’s decision to deny RaeQuan Battle a transfer waiver so he can play basketball for West Virginia University, according to Morrisey.

“The NCAA’s transfer policy, for far too long, has been flawed. The Association has failed to maintain a consistent and defensible transfer rule,” Attorney General Morrisey said, writing in the lawsuit that “the connection between the Rule and academic well-being or athletic amateurism is tenuous at best and is outweighed by the harm it does to college athletes and consumers of college athletics.”
