You may recall the story of Duke University Lacrosse players accused of raping a stripper during a team party back in 2006. The North Carolina students were exonerated in 2007 of all charges relating to the incident, though are still battling to receive compensation for the toll these charges took on their lives. Progress was made near the end of last month to allow them to proceed with their lawsuit.The players' case had made it all the way up to the U.S. District Court and Judge James A. Beaty Jr. to rule on whether or not their lawsuit would be allowed to proceed. Though the judge did dismiss their conspiracy and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims, he affirmed the men had a legitimate claim that their constitutional rights had been violated by the prosecution during the original case. Judge Beaty found there to be evidence fabrication and the use of false evidence by the prosecution, warranting a case to examine amendment rights violations on behalf of the state.
