After years of probing, arguing, and politicking, Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff has announced his agency will no longer seek to sue the Bowl Championship Series (“BCS”). Attorney General Shurtleff has argued the BCS violates antitrust laws and has sought law firms specializing in antitrust to bring suit against the BCS. Citing the announcement of a playoff system, Shurtleff has decided against pursuing the BCS for monetary damages under an antitrust theory. However, he indicated his office will monitor the playoff system to determine whether antitrust violations exist in the selection of competitors in the playoff system.
