The Duke Experience
From yesterday's edition of The Chronicle, the enduring and well-regarded Duke student daily:
JUDGE OKS PRESSLER'S SLANDER SUIT
A North Carolina appeals court ruled Tuesday that former men's lacrosse coach Mike Pressler can continue with a lawsuit against the University.
Pressler--who signed a settlement in 2007 with the University after he was fired following the false rape allegations in 2006--charges that John Burness, former Duke senior vice president for public affairs and government relations, made slanderous remarks about him after and in violation of the settlement, which included a clause precluding defamatory comments.
