Prequel to U.S. v. Walters

A couple of students have asked me about the “other” Norby Walters sports agent case mentioned in the textbook.  Before Mr. Walters was involved in U.S. v. Walters, he was a party in civil lawsuit, Walters & Bloom v. Fullwood, 675 F.Supp. 155 (SDNY 1987).  In that case, the judge ruled that the player agent contract Mr. Walters and Mr. Bloom were trying to enforce was entirely unenforceable as an illegal contract under New York law.
