Michael L. Buckner Assesses Georgia Tech’s Chances On Appeal

On July 22, 2011, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a story discussing Michael L. Buckner, shareholder of the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm’s thoughts on Georgia Tech’s chances on appeal from the Committee on Infractions recent decision in their enforcement case. If Georgia Tech decides to appeal the Committee on Infractions decision the final appeal option is the Infractions Appeals Committee. An appeal in front of the Infractions Appeals Committee is not a second opportunity to argue the case or an opportunity to present new evidence. Rather, the Infractions Appeals Committee  will reverse or modify a ruling of the Committee on Infractions only if one of the following standards is proven:

  • The ruling by the Committee on Infractions was clearly contrary to the evidence.
  • The individual or school did not actually break NCAA rules.
  • There was a procedural error that caused the Committee on Infractions to find a violation of NCAA rules.
  • The penalty was excessive and is an abuse of discretion.

The decision of the Infractions Appeals Committee is final.
