 On August 24, 2017, Amani Elijah Bledsoe, a defensive line-

 homa state court against the NCAA, challenging the denial of
 his NCAA doping appeal.' The lawsuit asks for a findingfrom
 the court in the form of a declaratory judgment that the NCAA
 wrongly denied Mr. Bledsoes internal doping appeal by violating
 his substantive and procedural due process rights under Oklaho-
 ma law. Mr. Bledsoe also sought an injunction to permit him to
 play the first 4 games of the 2017 season. In his complaint, Mr.
 Bledsoe claims his name and reputation has been forever im-
 pugned because of the NCAAs actions and that his draft status
for the NFL will be affected by the NCAA s denial of his rights.

hearing has been scheduled for November 20th. Since the court
did not grant the injunction sought by Mr. Bledsoe he will be
forced to finish out his 1-year suspension, which ends on October
4,2017.
