Washington State Supreme Court Puts ‘Pac-2’ Control On Hold

Nov 18, 2023

Oregon State and Washington State will not be able to take control of the Pac-12 for at least a month, according to a court ruling.

On Tuesday, a local judge ruled that Washington State and Oregon State — the only two remaining Pac-12 schools — can take control of the conference until the case goes to a trial. But Washington, which added itself as a defendant in the lawsuit in order to speak for departing schools, swiftly requested that the state Supreme Court court block this decision.

On Thursday, the Washington Supreme Court agreed to prohibit the WSU/OSU decision from going into effect temporarily.

The court has not issued a decision on whether it will hear the appeal, however. OSU and WSU will have until Nov. 28 to file a response — and the 10 departing schools have until Dec. 8 to file a counter.
