Issues:
Impairment, evidence, due process, private right of action
 
Case Summary:
Carl Barile, a former student at the University of Virginia, appeals a lower court's ruling in his suit against the school. University officials recruited Barile to play football for the school. Barile later injured his wrist during a game. The injury left Barile permanently disabled. Barile filed suit in Ohio against the school. The university responded with a motion for summary judgment, claiming Ohio courts lacked jurisdiction on the issue.
 
Decision of lower jurisdiction:
A trial court granted the university's motion to dismiss Barile's complaint. Barile now appeals.
 
Outcome:
Barile wins. The Ohio Court of Appeals, Cuyahoga County, Eighth Appellate District, reversed the trial court's decision. The appeals court ruled the university entered Ohio jurisdiction when it entered the state to recruit Barile and other student athletes. The appeals court remanded the case for appropriate action.
