    Hadn't seen this on the board yet. Not surprising, but anything bad that can happen to Nifong is good.

    They need to sue the university too. Duke should be paying for their education and their children's education too.

    Jesse's already taking care of the lying whore, so Duke should pick up the tab for the innocent. I wonder what the Gang of 88 will say in their depositions?

    You'd like to think that, you'd like to think they'd go after the school and anyone associated with it who opened their mouth... alas...

    And we know those kids so need the money.

    That doesn't mean that they weren't wronged.

    Yes, they were rich SOBs. But they were wronged as we/Mike Nifong did another rush to judgment job that played along race and (never mentioned, but just as important, highlighted by hondo's comments) class lines.

    Exactly. You can't exactly sue the guilty parties to simply, "be treated like we were. ..." They deserve anything they can get. What happened was a horrible injustice, financially in need or not.
  8. I hope they win a bundle, most of which will be spent on their project to bring light to cases just like theirs.

    This one is true, they don't need the extra cash.

    It would be the proper thing to do to donate funds to such a project.

    One kid was quoted that when he dies, somewhere it will be written that he died and then it will be mentioned that he was one of the Duke lax players accused of...

    Rich or not, these kids deserve something. If it comes out of Duke's and Durham's and anyone else they can think of backsides, so be it.

    Agreed. The only sad part is those professors that turned on these kids has gotten off unscathed.

    And the university president is able to do the same with an apology last week that sounded like little more than a "my bad".
