Judge tosses defamation suit against Syracuse's Boeheim

A New York State Supreme Court justice dismissed Friday a defamation lawsuit against Syracuse University and its longtime head basketball coach, Jim Boeheim.

The suit was filed in December by two former ball boys for the basketball team, who have accused Bernie Fine, a former assistant coach, of repeated sexual abuse when they were children.

Boeheim (pictured) initially supported Fine, a longtime friend and colleague, accusing Mike Lang and his stepbrother, Bobby Davis, of fabricating their accusations of Fine's alleged misconduct. The coach later apologized for his comments.

    The powers that be just don't care about the name stealers. They would much rather pick on a person who likes to bring a little levity to these boards.

      @ dazzle

      I checked out that thread and can make nosense whatsoever of it. The posters are going in all kinds of directions blaming the federal government for the shortcomings of the state officials.
      Is Arpaio keeping these illegal immigrants in inhumane conditions ? I read so many stories about him profiling and they seem to be a true or false exam. Help me out here, what is the truth ?!

    @bobcat(iah) no you had a jacker on that thread. I called him out on it and they may have deleted his posts. Just having my friends back. No these are mere allegations against Arpaio. I support him.

      @ dazzle

      They obviously removed my jackres post. Thanks for having my back.
      On Arpaio, I've heard so many conflicting stories, I didn't know what to believe. I have heard he likes to keep prisoners in tent cities out there. Is that true ? If so I'll definitely behave myself when I come out there.

      I've been a crazy man lately. Just jumping from story to story. There's no telling how many times we've missed each other.
      BTW How's your little man doing ?

    Trolling by definition is NOT the taking of anothers' s/n
    That would be *highjacking*
    And I've spent more time on this than I care to.
    Needless to say... your barking up the wrong tree.
    Later 😉
