The Nifong Scandal

It’s time to stop saying “Lacrosse scandal” or “Duke scandal”. It’s the Nifong scandal:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – DNA testing in the Duke lacrosse rape case found genetic material from several males in the accuser’s body and her underwear – but none from any team member, defense attorneys said in court papers Wednesday.

The papers were filed by attorneys for the three lacrosse players charged, Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans. They complained that the information about DNA from other men was not disclosed in a report prosecutors provided earlier this year to the defense.
