A federal judge has denied the NCAA's request to delay the trial on the antitrust suit by former UCLA basketball player Ed O'Bannon and others.
The trial will begin June 9 in Oakland, California, and has the potential to reshape the way major college sports operate.
It will center on claims that the NCAA conspired to restrain competition in Division I sports and in the group licensing of broadcasts and videogames.
Judge Claudia Wilken also set another trial for next March on claims by other athletes that the NCAA and the videogame maker Electronic Arts misappropriated athletes' names and likenesses for NCAA-branded videogames. That case previously had been combined with the O'Bannon case.
