10 F.3d 633 (1993)
The Nevada legislature enacted Nev. Rev. Stat. § 398.155-398.255, which required any national collegiate athletic association to provide a Nevada institution, employee, student-athlete, or booster who is accused of a rules infraction with certain procedural due process protections during an enforcement proceeding in which sanctions may be imposed. Appellee athletic association brought action for declaratory judgment, claiming the statute was unconstitutional. The lower court found that the statute violated both the Commerce Clause and the Contracts Clause.
On appeal, the court affirmed the decision of the lower court. The court found that the statute in question violated the Commerce Clause per se as it directly controlled commerce occurring outside the boundaries of the state.
The court affirmed the lower court's decision in favor of appellee athletic association because the court found that the statute in question directly controlled commerce occurring wholly outside the state's boundaries and violated the Commerce Clause per se.
