The judge in the UFC antitrust lawsuit stated he plans to accelerate the case moving forward after taking five and a half years to decide on class certification. 

U.S. District Judge Richard Boulware of Las Vegas, Nevada informed representatives from the UFC and the plaintiff fighters at a status conference on Monday that he is prioritising this matter moving forward and hopes to convene a trial in March or April of 2019.

Judge Declares ‘Fast Track’ Trial In 2024- More Update

Should the UFC lose its appeal, the case, which had been largely in a holding pattern for years, suddenly has an extremely ambitious schedule for the future. The plaintiffs will have 10 days to respond to the promotion’s petition to appeal Boulware’s class certification order, after which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will have 90 days to decide whether or not to accept the UFC’s petition.

As the conference progressed, it became evident that both lawsuits will continue until the appeals court issues a final decision. During the conference, it first appeared as though Boulware was going to suspend all case proceedings until after the Ninth Circuit had decided whether or not to accept the petition. The UFC is now the target of two antitrust lawsuits. Le et al., the first, includes alleged UFC anticompetitive behaviour from December 2010 to June 2017. The second, Johnson et al., deals with the same behaviour roughly from July 2017 to the present.

Both sides agreed a trial would last around 4-5 weeks when asked how long they believed it would take. Being one of the few occasions the two sides in this nearly nine-year-old dispute had agreed on anything, the moment was a breath of fresh air.

Boulware announced that all court documents previously covered by a protective order would be made public, prompting audible gasps from the audience. It would be the whole situation, he said. However, they won’t be made public right now because each party has until October 31 to provide their version of the court record, which will only have minimal redactions for the fighters’ health data, contact information, and email addresses.
