Maryland's ACC exit lawsuit goes before court

Posted: Updated:

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A judge in Prince George's County will hear arguments in a lawsuit over the University of Maryland's withdrawal from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
    
Maryland announced in November that it will leave the ACC for the Big Ten in 2014. The ACC sued the school in North Carolina to make it pay a $52 million penalty for exiting the conference. Maryland responded by suing the ACC in a Maryland court, calling the penalty illegal.
    
The ACC is asking Maryland's lawsuit be dismissed or stayed until the lawsuit in North Carolina is concluded. Maryland says the withdrawal penalty would wipe out nearly its entire athletic budget and is illegal under Maryland antitrust law.
    
Arguments are scheduled for Thursday in Prince George's County Circuit Court.
