Duke Lacrosse Scandal: Parents, Doubts, Lineups, & Subpoenas

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. - Martin Luther King Jr.

The Washington Post - Lacrosse Players' Case a Trial for Parents:
Faith in Their Sons' Innocence Sustains Parents Amid Ravages of Scandal...

Four local families -- all of players not charged -- agreed to interviews, providing a window into an ordeal that for many began with a simple phone call from a son saying that there had been a party.

Newsday - Doubts raised in Duke case:
Parents of some Duke University lacrosse players said Friday that court documents made public this week in North Carolina cast new doubts on the truthfulness of the exotic dancer who accused three players of raping her during an off-campus party in March...

Another parent of a Long Island player, who asked not to be named, said he expects Durham District Attorney Michael Nifong to proceed with the case nonetheless.

"This guy's going to take it to trial, unfortunately. As far as the evidence, that's really for the system to decide," said the parent, adding, "I know the kids and they're innocent."

WRAL.com - Attorneys: At Least Six Photo Lineups Done In Duke Lacrosse Investigation:
In a motion filed Friday, defense attorneys say the accuser in the Duke Lacrosse rape investigation went through at least six sessions with police, trying to point out her attackers.

The News & Observer - More join bid on subpoenas:
More lawyers are protesting District Attorney Mike Nifong's quest for personal information from Duke University lacrosse players not charged in the rape case.

Nifong issued two subpoenas May 31. One asked Duke officials for home addresses for 47 lacrosse players and two other students. The other sought electronic identity card data that could track where they were in the hours before and after the alleged rape
