Syracuse, NY - Lawyers for former associate Syracuse University basketball coach Bernie Fine this afternoon commended District Attorney William Fitzpatrick for revealing information that undermines Zach Tomaselli's claims he was molested by Fine. "We thank District Attorney Fitzpatrick for fulfilling his ethical obligations and look forward to reviewing these exculpatory materials. "It appears now that there is proof that Tomaselli fabricated this allegation. The incredible damage that Tomaselli has inflicted on Mr. Fine cannot be overstated. "We are hopeful that federal authorities will soon come to the same conclusion regarding Tomaselli's lack of credibility. Moreover, the notion that Tomaselli could be relied on to procure a warrant to search is alarming," lawyers Donald Martin and Karl Sleight said in a written statement released to the media. "If Tomaselli is found to have lied to federal authorities, particularly as it related to the application to search Mr. Fine's residence, we hope that he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," they added.
