For those who missed it, the Maryland women's basketball schedule just came out. And, just like the men, there will be no home games against any of the tobacco road teams (i.e. Duke, North Carolina or North Carolina State). This is the first time this has occurred on the women's side since 1981 and the first time ever that it has occurred on the men's side.
Here is a link to a story about this from the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/terrapins-insider/wp/2013/05/29/maryland-womens-basketball-receives-acc-opponents/
So, here is the question for the lawyers in the group. Does the University have a viable claim against the ACC based on this scheduling? It is pretty clear that this was done intentionally and likely with the intent to financially injure Maryland. (By giving Maryland less desirable home games, the terps wil sell fewer tickets and thereby generate less revenue.) If I'm right and it is an intentional act by the ACC to financially injure one its member institutions, is that actionable? Does it fall within the concept of tortious interference with contract or just general bad faith?
As you can probably tell, that's my guess but I'd be interested what others think about this matter?
