Duke lacrosse players lawsuit #1

We checked PACER and it's true. This morning former Duke students and lacrosse players Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and Dave Evans sued prosecutor Mike Nifong, the city of Durham and police detectives

in a North Carolina federal court. The complaint calls the discredited and dismissed rape charges against them “one of the most chilling episodes of premeditated police, prosecutorial and scientific misconduct in modern American history.” AP report is here. Watch next for the players suit against Duke U. itself.
