SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A judge is set to hear arguments on a motion to dismiss a defamation lawsuit against Syracuse University and men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim.
Former team ballboys Bobby Davis and Mike Lang claim Boeheim slandered them by saying they were out for money after allegations former assistant coach Bernie Fine sexually abused them surfaced in November.
A hearing on the dismissal motion is scheduled for Friday.
Fine has denied any wrongdoing and hasn’t been charged. He was fired in November.
