Wrongly accused players ask for lawsuit to proceed
A group of former Duke University lacrosse players wrongly arrested on rape charges in 2006 has asked a federal appeals court to let their lawsuit against the City of Durham, N.C., move forward. Cleared players David Evans, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann sued Durham and a long list of officials that include the former city manager and former police chief, arguing that their civil rights were violated after they were indicted on felony charges that police and prosecutors knew to be false.
