The federal judge in the case of running back Maurice Clarett rules that the National Football League's age-limit rule violates U.S. anti-trust law. Clarett, who helped Ohio State University win a national title in 2003, had sued the NFL over a policy that prohibits a player from entering the league until three years after his high school class graduates. Hear NPR's Tom Goldman.
