Jury Clears NCAA of Wrongdoing in Former USC Football Player’s Death

A Los Angeles jury Tuesday rejected a multimillion-dollar wrongful death lawsuit against the NCAA by a woman who claimed that her late husband suffered brain damage while playing football for USC.

On its first full day of deliberations, the Los Angeles Superior Court jury found that the NCAA was not liable in the death of Matthew Gee, who died in 2018. His widow, Alana Gee, claimed his death stemmed from permanent brain damage he suffered while playing linebacker for the 1990 Rose Bowl-winning team.

Attorneys for Alana Gee asked jurors during closing arguments Monday to award her more than $50 million in damages. They argued during the monthlong trial that Gee’s death was the result of repetitive harmful blows to the head.
