UNC: Dismiss McAdoo Lawsuit

The University of North Carolina is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by former football player Michael McAdoo.

The Charlotte Observer reported the school and Chancellor Holden Thorp filed papers in Durham Superior Court on Tuesday asking that the lawsuit be dropped.

McAdoo sued July 1, after the NCAA ruled him permanently ineligible to play college sports.

A hearing is scheduled Oct. 11.

The university and Thorp argue because McAdoo has signed with the Baltimore Ravens, he voluntarily forfeited his eligibility and no longer has a claim against the school.

McAdoo's lawyer, Noah Huffstetler III, says he is not surprised by the request. Huffstetler has said McAdoo was found guilty of only one of three violations reported to the NCAA.
