|ACC sues Maryland over exit fee|
|Press Release - Tuesday, November 27, 2012 3:40 PM||
The Atlantic Coast Conference has filed a lawsuit against Maryland seeking full payment of the $50 million exit fee for announcing a move to the Big Ten.
The Guilford County Superior Court clerk's office said the lawsuit was filed there Monday.
In a statement, Commissioner John Swofford says the ACC's council of presidents unanimously decided "to file legal action to ensure enforcement of this obligation."
The league raised its exit fee to $50 million in September after adding Notre Dame in all sports except football. Maryland was one of two schools that voted against the increased exit fee.
