UT’s Legal Fees Top $300,000 In NCAA Case

Crime doesn’t pay.

Unless, of course, you’re a lawyer.  In that case, someone else’s crime most certainly does pay.  Take the law team of Bond, Schoeneck and King for example.  That firm has been paid $317,178 and six cents to defend and advise the University of Tennessee during its recent NCAA investigation.

While that amount of cash might sound like a lot, it’s actually par for the course when it comes to defending a school from NCAA allegations.  In fact, Michigan recently spend more than $600,000 and Ohio State more than $800,000 in legal fees, according to The Knoxville News Sentinel.

Reminds me of an old joke…

A man walks into a lawyer’s office and asks the attorney how much he usually charges for legal consultation. 

The lawyer says, “I charge $1000 to answer three questions.”

“Don’t you think that’s a lot of money just to answer three questions?”

“Yes, I do,” says the lawyer.  “Now what’s your third question?”

No, when it's reported that an SEC school has paid $300,000 in legal fees, we view that as something our readers would be interested in knowing.
