'It's Safe for Now': The Rooney Rule is an NFL Institution. But for How Much Longer?
[quote] "It's safe for now," American University sports law professor N. Jeremi Duru told USA TODAY Sports.
He added: "The ruling is a couple of degrees removed from the Rooney Rule."
The reason it's safe for the moment, Duru explains, is the Supreme Court ruling is specific to the college admissions process. It doesn't apply to workplace environments.
"But we're almost guaranteed to see cases that seek to expand the ruling into the employment realm," Duru said.
