So the state of Maryland has filed suit against the ACC, claiming, as best as I can tell, that the ACC attempted to recruit B1G teams to make the switch.
I'm no lawyer, but as far as I can tell, the claim is based on the idea that that would have caused harm to Maryland. (Otherwise why file.) So....it seems to me that Maryland (through the state and the AG) is claiming that when a team leaves a conference, it causes harm to the teams in the conference. Which would really not help them make their case that they shouldn't have to pay the exit fee to the ACC.
