DURHAM -- In a filing Tuesday in Federal Court, unindicted Duke Lacrosse players are suing Duke University, the City of Durham, Duke University professors, Mike Nifong and the DNA lab involved in the case.
The suit also names doctors and nurses who treated the alleged victim the night she claimed she'd been raped at a party. The players are also suing City Manager Patrick Baker and former Durham Police Chief Stephen Chalmers. As part of the investigation, the unindicted players had to give up DNA samples and were named in the school paper.
In the 404-page lawsuit, the players say that Duke University, the City of Durham and the other defendants were part of a "conspiracy to railroad 47 Duke University students" based on "the transparently false claim of rape, sexual offense, and kidnapping made by a clinically unreliable accuser." Also in the lawsuit, the players say that the accuser's claim was "taken virtually from her lips and fashioned into a weapon in the hands of those who would leverage outrage."

sue the tramp too. get her behind bars!
You can’t “sue” someone into prison.
I’d like to see the Gang of 88 end up sleeping on the streets.
Hope they win, doubt they will.
I LOVE it. This is how it should be. I will watch with delight as this unfolds. Get the popcorn.
Good for them!
I think this has to be done.
Not sure I'm on board with this part. Depose as witnesses maybe, but sue? Not unless maybe they falsified evidence or something.
you can if you can prove she perjured herself to the grand jury, the indicted DA and perhaps even a conspiracy charge w/the DA.
How about “FALSELY ACCUSED”????
Are they suing the accuser, as well?
I would bet it gets settled out of court.
The stipper/whore is a proved liar, Nifong has been fired and disbarred. Why would you say they will not win?
Did she ever testify before the grand jury?
“sue the tramp too. get her behind bars!”
In the PC land of 2007 America, she is a triple-protected citizen:
Black, female and “mentally-disturbed”.
My initial reaction as well.
Not much prospect of collecting anything from a penniless skank, is there?
When the North Carolina Attorney General declared the three indicted players innocent and he said that there was never any evidence that a crime had occurred.
It appears that certain medical personnel at Duke hospital put out information early on that she had “signs, symptoms and injuries consistent with being raped and sexually assaulted” which allowed the false prosecution to proceed.
