NCAA sued over new rule barring felon coaches
Wednesday - 2/13/2013, 11:20pm EST
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A nonprofit group is suing the NCAA over a new policy that bars felons from coaching NCAA-sanctioned high school events.
The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law claims that the rule violates the Civil Rights Act. The group sued on behalf of Dominic Hardie, who had a nonviolent drug conviction more than a decade ago.
Hardie had coached high school girls' basketball teams in NCAA tournaments in the past. But his legal team says his coaching certification was not renewed because of his conviction.
The suit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in San Diego. Hardie is seeking a preliminary injunction that will allow him to coach in an upcoming game in San Diego.
The NCAA says it stands by its policy and intends to fight the lawsuit.
