NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthony R. Caruso, Esq., sports attorney and NFL Agent, has announced the publication of his legal research and analysis on current issues involving sports concussions.
Entitled "Collegiate Collisions on the Field and in the Courtroom: Will Labor Peace Save Student-Athletes from Further Injury?" the article appears in the prestigious Journal of Business and Technology Law of the University of Maryland School of Law. The article is the culmination of legal research and analysis of the ever-evolving topic of concussions in light of recent developments with the NCAA.
"Concussion-related topics are at the forefront of all discussions involving contact sports, and rightfully so," says Caruso. "For too long, this topic has been side-stepped as a necessary evil for the participation of the athlete. Medical research now clearly obviates any further attempts to ignore the significance and full understanding of this dangerous condition."
The research article is a detailed and convincing argument for the advancement of education, treatment and prevention of concussions without dismantling the intricate framework of the student athlete as currently existing. "This issue needs to be resolved in a thoughtful and well-conceived manner by all parties involved, rather than in a fragmented and incongruent fashion by various courts throughout the nation," says Caruso. "Those involved with college and pro sports at various levels have been aware of concussions for quite some time, but have yet to seriously address the inherently competing issues until very recently. We need to keep the momentum moving forward in favor of the player, particularly the student-athlete."
Launched in the fall of 2005, the Journal of Business & Technology Law has provided a publication venue for the latest thinking on business and technology issues. As the first publication to examine these issues together, the Journal seeks to add an important voice to the nation's legal scholarship. The publication can be found using the following link: http://digitalcommons.law.umaryland.edu/jbtl/.
Caruso is uniquely positioned to comment on issues concerning college and pro football players because of his extensive experience in sports and business law. As a prominent sports, media, and entertainment attorney based in the New York City / New Jersey area, he has significant experience in negotiating complex transactions relevant to the professional athlete and served as an NFL Agent for several pro players from 1994 to 2000. "I enjoyed protecting the interests of the professional athlete both on and off the field," says Caruso. He has now returned to the role of NFL agent and has several players under his representation.
In addition to being a sports entertainment attorney and NFL agent, Caruso teaches sports related courses as an adjunct professor at NYU. He also previously founded and served as legal counsel to a new sports league, where he later became the commissioner. He gained international attention in his representation of beauty pageant winner regarding a media blackmail situation. Mr. Caruso provided all legal counseling and negotiations, strategy, media supervision, and crisis management in that case. He has appeared on various programs including NBC, FOX, MSNBC and E! News, and is routinely requested by the media for his advice and views on current sports/legal issues.
