Jan. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Austin,TX-January 6, 2012-  The latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert reports how a North Carolina state appeals court has affirmed a lower court’s ruling that dismissed a lawsuit brought by members and coaches of a high school basketball team, who sued the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, Inc., in an attempt to regain a championship that had been stripped from the school.

Specifically, the court found that the plaintiffs lacked standing, since the championship had been taken from the school, not the coaches or players.
