NPR''s Tom Goldman reports that the Supreme Court hears a case today which will decide whether the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) can be sued for sex discrimination. The federal law known as Title 9 prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender by any program or activity that receives federal funds. The NCAA has been exempt under that law because it has not officially received federal funds. However, the pending case may strip away that protection.
