Rutgers elects to sue the Big East over exit fee
Wednesday - 12/5/2012, 3:52pm EST
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers University is suing the Big East Conference, trying to avoid paying an exit fee.
Rutgers is trying to avoid a $10 million hit for leaving en route to the Big Ten. Big East bylaws state a school must give 27 months' notice and pay a $10 million withdrawal fee.
The suit says the Big East selectively enforced the rules. Rutgers claims some schools did and some did not have to give notice or pay the fee on their way out of the embattled conference.
The league voted to increase its exit fee from $5 million to $10 million last month. Rutgers did not vote on the motion, but voiced opposition.
Rutgers has also asked the Big East for $1.3 million it said it lost when a game was canceled due to the opposition's withdrawal.
The lawsuit was filed in Middlesex County Superior Court Wednesday.
