On June 30, 2012, a North American Association of Sports Economists-sponsored symposium session entitled “Sports Economics on Trial†was held in conjunction with the 2012 Western Economics Association International conference in San Francisco, California. The foci of the symposium were two-fold. First, speakers discussed relevant evidentiary rules and recent legal cases that turned on sports economics issues and expert testimony related thereto. Second, the panel sought to collectively provide a primer that academics and professionals working in the sports economics realm could subsequently turn to as a guide when involved in litigation pertaining to their research. This article represents an outgrowth of the symposium, highlighting four recent legal cases under the sports economics umbrella and addressing discrete issues relevant to sports economics’ role in litigation.
