SAT // NOV 30

Persuasive Authority presents "EXTREME OVERTIME: When Wrestling Goes From the Mat to the Courtroom"

Persuasive Authority is a new Continuing Legal Education series from lawyer and comedian Charles Star that you'll listen to for more than just the security code.

If you’ve ever been so mad at a ref that you wanted someone to sue, you’re not alone. Extreme Overtime is a case study on the federal laws protecting the rights of amateur and Olympic athletes by examining the surprisingly litigious history of the Team USA Wrestling qualification process. If you thought that it took a lot of flexibility to escape a hold on the mat, wait until you see what their lawyers tried. Referees aren’t always the final judges.
