Indianapolis-based National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) recently requested the concealment of 14 documents in relation to a wrongful death case against them, The Washington Post reported on June 4.
The estate of former Frostburg State University football player Derek Sheely is suing the organization after Sheely died in 2011 from brain injury. In addition to the NCAA, his family named two coaches and a university athletic trainer in the suit.
The NCAA asked a Montgomery County judge to conceal certain documents for the protection of the association. If such information was released, it would be “harmful to the NCAA’s legitimate business interests,” court documents stated.
