A hearing on the lawsuit filed by the parents of 19 Las Cruces football players against the NMAA will be held 10 a.m. today, according to a press release by the NMAA.

After a Las Cruces judge granted a restraining order to the parents, Friday the NMAA decided to delay the selection of the class 5A football playoff teams.

The NMAA forced Las Cruces to forfeit two games after a player was declared ineligible for both games. The parents answered with the suit, claiming it was unfair to the rest of the team.
