Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (5/12/2017)
This week, I celebrated two years of being in a relationship with the woman I currently consider my fiancee, who will ultimately become my wife in December. Unfortunately for her, the anniversary fell on the second day of a trial I was litigating, so the festivities have been suspended for this weekend. The NBA Playoffs are pretty intolerable to watch. As a South Florida resident, it is also not easy to watch professional hockey, despite how compelling the game play may be. Can’t it be football season already?
This week on Forbes:
(1) California Sports Agency Sued For Gender Discrimination;
(2) This Week In Sports Law: NBA Agent’s Uber Rides, NCAA Legal Fees, Patriots Trademarks; and
(3) Paddy Power Betfair Pays $48 Million For Daily Fantasy Sports Co
