Russian Paralympic Ban Goes Too Far

The mass banning of all 267 Russian athletes from the Paralympics without regard to their individual guilt is a gross violation of their rights. Furthermore, it undermines the competitiveness of the Paralympics and does not solve the underlying problem of state-sponsored doping. Ron Katz, senior counsel in Manatt's entertainment, sports and media litigation practice group, comments on the situation in Forbes.com.
