awyers for Zachary Tomaselli scheduled a Thursday news conference to announce their intention to file a civil suit against former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine..
Tomaselli was thrust into the national spotlight this month as the third man to publicly allege that Fine molested him when he was 13.
Tomaselli has said they watched pornography together before Fine fondled him in a hotel room in Pittsburgh, where he'd gone to watch a Syracuse game in 2002.
Tomaselli will attend the news conference "and speak to his abuse," according to a statement from attorneys Jeff Anderson and Alan Perer released late Wednesday.
Authorities say they are investigating the allegations.
The developments came hours after a New York District attorney told reporters he had handed over "exculpatory" records on the team's travel and accommodations to Fine's attorneys. He also handed over information on Tomaselli's school attendance, but declined to say whether he found him credible.
Exculpatory material tends to either indicate the accuser was not telling the truth or is beneficial to the defense, Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick said.
Fine's attorneys, Donald Martin and Karl Sleight, said earlier Wednesday they looked forward to reviewing material from Fitzpatrick.FULL STORY
