John Askin lawsuit against Notre Dame, NCAA

John Askin Lawsuit Adds a New Layer to College Football Misconduct

On Feb. 15 former University of Notre Dame football player John Askin lodged his complaints in his state of residence, Kentucky. Named as defendants are the NCAA and Notre Dame. In the composition of the allegations of constructive fraud, fraudulent concealment and negligence on the parts of the NCAA and Notre Dame, Askin claims the actions/inactions of the defendants led to the symptoms of neurological damage he now suffers.

Askin’s allegations include claims that he was illegally and improperly administered controlled substances for pain management during his playing time for the Fightin’ Irish. Not only does he assert they were illegally administering medications, but they were even using a medication approved for veterinary use on humans.
