Less than a week after the NCAA rejected his final appeal, Mauk has filed a lawsuit against the association. Hardin County Judge William Hart in Mauk's home area of Kenton, Ohio, has granted a temporary restraining order that says the NCAA cannot prevent him from practicing with the Bearcats.
The judge set an Aug. 22 hearing on Mauk's request for a permanent injunction. The story was first reported by WKTN-FM in Kenton.
Mauk was a key player as Cincinnati rose to college football's Top 25 last season. He wants another season of eligibility, saying he lost college playing time because of injury while at Wake Forest.
