ACC responds with a countersuit against Clemson

In a new legal development, the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) has taken action following Clemson University’s recent lawsuit against it.

The ACC has retaliated by filing a counter lawsuit against Clemson, opting to pursue legal proceedings in Mecklenburg County. The Athletic’s Chris Vannini was the first to report on the situation on X (formerly known as Twitter). This move echoes the conference’s previous legal action against Florida State, filed in the same county last December.

Last year, on December 21, Florida State initiated legal proceedings against the ACC. Now, with Clemson joining FSU in contesting the league, both universities are challenging the ACC in court regarding its Grant of Rights deal and the substantial $130 million exit fee. Now it is Clemson who is officially joining the battle.

Here is some of what the records had to say:
