DURHAM Duke University and 38 members of its 2005-06 mens lacrosse team notified a federal judge on Wednesday that theyd settled the players lawsuit out of court.

They should have also sued each and every professor that signed the petition assuming their guilt.
I wonder how this was received in the Martin family attorney’s offices today.
The brilliant minds of Duke University were led into the gutter by Al Sharpton, a street hustler from the hood. I hope they paid plenty for the experience.
They didn’t need Sharpton. They could find that gutter all by themselves.
I’ve always said it, as a 5-year resident of Durham (thankfully no more), it’s a poisonous, evil place. And Duke is the worst part of it...a mixture of ultra-liberal guilty white academics sitting in the middle of a town run by black racists and white enablers. The second that Crazy Crystal Mangum started claiming rape, those students were never going to get a fair hearing either from the university or the city. It’s a measure of how far everything went that it took a Democratic state attorney general to slap down fellow Rat Mike Nifong and completely exonerate the three students of all charges.
Mangum, BTW, is sitting in jail up on murder charges for stabbing her last boyfriend to death.
How much did they sue for? I wonder how much they got?
‘twould be interesting to now...
How very sweet it is!!!!!!!!!!
Amen. Those cretins absolutely refuse to apologize for their reprehensible behavior. Instead, they blame the media and bloggers for publicizing their ad — basically, they’re blaming the witnesses of their crime.
The ring leader is the worst of all. A professor of African American studies who maintains that their actions were justified because of all the racism in this country. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_of_88
Thank you politically correct America. You have unleashed a Pandora’s box of victim-mentality behavior that will never be taken back.
If you had access to all of the ‘settled out of court’ cases involving universities, you wouldn’t have to look for additional reading material for quite a long time.
Amen to that. And the local media too. Warning: if you are a white male in America you will be taken down. Warning Back: White males are pissed.
Unfortunately, they probably got very little, because the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit threw out most of their case last month.
Duke’s endowment as of 2012 was $5.5 billion dollars. That’s billion - 5,600 million dollars. (and their earnings on it are tax free).
I expect they could pay out what would seem like a fairly lucrative settlement out the earnings from their endowment, and it would barely be noticed.
And alumni sheep (with sheepskins to prove it) will continue to donate.
Not enough bad things can happen to Mike Nifong, IMHO.
You’’re probably already aware of this.
Only because the kids parents were rich were they able to hire the best law team available.
Still amazes me that Nifong is not in prison and can walk down the street a free man. Where have all the vigilantes gone?
Warning: if you are a white male in America you will be taken down.
Not this white male. He is pissed.
In three departments, more than half of faculty signed the statement. The department with the highest proportion of signatories was African and African-American Studies (AAAS), with 80%. Just over 72% of the Women's Studies faculty signed the statement, Cultural Anthropology 60%, Romance Studies 44.8%, Literature 41.7%, English 32.2%, Art & Art History 30.7%, and History 25%.
No faculty members from the Pratt School of Engineering or full-time law professors signed the document. Other departments that had no faculty members sign the document include Biological Anthropology and Anatomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Genetics, Germanic Languages/Literature, Psychology and Neuroscience, Religion, and Slavic and Eurasian Studies.
In other words the professors of subjects of which the graduates can actually get a job didn't sign; the professors of future community organizers and unemployed OWS fleabaggers did.
You said it well! Touche.
Very interesting and proof once again that many things are taught in college that are little more than Bull.
Only the ignorant even sign up for crap like that.
African studies. I can place them in any Fire Department or Police Department in the larger cities of this country and they will learn more about African-American studies in 6 months than they would learn in 40 years of college BS courses.
Good to see some retribution for this awful case of Black Ku Klux Klan Racism.....and the White Guilt Liberals who conspired with it.
Even sadder....we have a number of GOP White Guilt Liberals in my area who are aiding the Black Ku Klux Klan in lynching George Zimmerman. My county will someday have to cough up settlement money to the Zimmerman family....after we spend millions trying to lynch them first.
At least I can work to make sure our Dukes and Nifongs .....Gov Rick Scott and AG Dark Meat Bondi....are primaried out next year. Your Seminole County will be working on that
You nailed it. Professors with a little intelligence and knowledge of how the rule of law is intended to work wouldn’t debase themselves by signing.
The leftist, racist liberal arts scum couldn’t sign it fast enough.
The terms of the settlement weren’t disclosed, but I hope it was huge. However, it’s too bad it will cause no real pain for the nasty hearts that perpetrated the hate game.
Did these athletes (former athletes at this point) ever sue the various faculty members for their libels?
