Jim Boeheim Lawsuit: Judge Denies Request To Name Players Over Laurie Fine Allegations

Are we even still talking about Bernie Fine anymore? No, pretty sure we're talking about everyone EXCEPT Bernie Fine.

For example...

Friday, a judge denied a request from Bobby Davis and Mike Lang's lawyers, Gloria Allred and Mariann Wang, to make Syracuse University turn over information related to former basketball players who may or may not have slept with Laurie Fine during Jim Boeheim's time as head coach of the Syracuse Orange basketball team.

The judge said the information Wang sought was not relevant to a request from SU and coach Jim Boeheim for a change of venue.

The lawyers were attempting to get the venue of the lawsuit moved from Onondaga County to New York City. While Lang & Davis' lawyer continued to argue that many judges in Onondaga County would have an "unconscious" bias based of relatives or associates related to SU, a lawyer for SU said that a move to NYC is illogical since no one involved with the case is actually from there.

The judge came correct on the assertion that allegations against Laurie Fine were relevant:

"Let me stop you there...You're not suing Bernie Fine or Laurie Fine. You're suing Boeheim and the university. So let's assume he knew about Mrs. Fine having inappropriate relationships with basketball players. So what?"

The article also notes that the judge mispronounced Boeheim's name, which was either proof that it won't be an issue or a stroke of evil genius. The judge also openly asked if Wang was on a fishing expedition.

It's not over by a long shot but the momentum moves to Boeheim's side.
